Wetlands are vital and the Rock River Coalition encourages their protection with our members and partnering organizations help. Read on to learn more. The join us by becoming one of our wetland monitoring volunteers!
Wetlands act as a sponge, collecting water that would otherwise flood the surrounding landscape, including urban areas. The soils and plants in a wetland help clean water that eventually replenishes water that ends up in our wells, lakes and streams. They support an incredible amount of wildlife by providing shelter, food and water.
