Wetlands provide important habitat for many wildlife and are excellent filters for water as it flows from the land into streams, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay. They are also among the ecosystems most vulnerable to loss from urban and agricultural development.
In the videos below, follow along with CBF educators Ronnie Anderson and Ben Carver to learn about natural and manmade freshwater wetlands in the Bay watershed, what lives in them, and how they are threatened. Then dive into our Freshwater Wetlands Investigation.
