About the event
Wetlands make up a significant portion of land in Alaska and the Susitna River Watershed. In fact, land in Matanuska Susitna Borough alone is ¼ wetlands. These wetlands are often considered to be useful only for filling and development. Quite the contrary, our Alaska wetlands are valuable resources which serve ecologically important roles for our fish and wildlife. Because these wetlands are critically important, steps must be taken to make sure that wetland areas are taken care of during infrastructure development and considered during agricultural and forestry practices.
This webinar will be streamed on Facebook Live and on Zoom.
