Wetlands are important! They store water and help prevent flooding. Minnesota originally had 18.6 million acres of wetlands that provided water for birds, fish, and other wildlife. Only half of these wetlands remain. Learn about these ecosystems and how to protect water quality, and the lives that depend on the state's wetlands - including our own. New to 4-H?
