Description A guidebook for landowners with wetlands on their property. It describes how wetlands function, explains their significance in your local watershed and in the hydrologic cycle, and shows how human activities have come to threaten wetlands. This book offers protection, enhancement, and preservation options - things you can do for your wetland. It also explains the importance of your role as a wetland steward.

NOTES Chapter Six of this second edition incorporates information from Ecology’s out-of-print Wetlands Preservation: An Information and Action Guide, written by Jane Rubey (see Related Publications).
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
