We need our wetlands! Do your part to protect and preserve these fragile ecosystems.
Join programs that help protect and restore wetlands. Contact your local community or environmental groups about activities in your area.
Report illegal activities such as filling, clearing, or dumping in wetlands.
Pick up litter.
Plant local tree species.
Use phosphate-free laundry and dishwasher detergents. Phosphates help algae grow. Algae can choke aquatic life.
Use paper and recycled products made from unbleached paper. Bleached paper contains toxic chemicals that can contaminate water.
Use non‑toxic products for cleaning, lawn and garden care.
Reduce, reuse, and recycle household items and waste.
