American Wetlands Month

May is being observed as American Wetlands Month, an observance designed to celebrate the vital importance of wetlands to the Nation’s ecological, economic, and social health. (Wetlands help improve water quality, increase water storage and supply, reduce flooding and provide critical habitat for plants, fish and wildlife.)
