In October of last year, the Council of Great Lakes Governors outlined nine priorities for restoring and protecting the Great Lakes, including the restoration and protection of coastal wetlands. This recognition underscores the need to convene scientists and others working on the Great Lakes to share current knowledge about coastal wetlands, threats to coastal wetlands, research needs and protection strategies. Help build a statewide and regional collaboration for protecting and restoring Wisconsin's coastal wetlands by participating in Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands.  We welcome wetland scientists and researchers, wetland professionals, conservationists, students, and anyone with an interest in coastal wetlands.
