5/11 - 5/11
Tracy Hames is Executive Director of Wisconsin Wetlands Association. In his lecture, you’ll learn about what wetlands are, why they’re important, the current state of wetlands in Wisconsin, and what you can do to care for these natural treasures. Historically viewed as wastelands, wetland loss was rampant in Wisconsin for many decades. The legacy of wetland loss has contributed to many of our current natural resource and societal problems such as increased flooding, decreased water quality, and loss of fish and wildlife habitat. Hames presents wetlands from a new perspective, showing how we can use them as solutions to the water-related issues we face, especially flooding. You may just leave this lecture with hope for the future, motivated to help protect and care for the wetlands in your community.
