2022 Wetland Treasures of the Carolinas
The Carolina Wetlands Association joins wetlands enthusiasts all over the country to raise public awareness about the beauty and importance of the nation’s wetlands during May – American Wetlands Month. The designation of Wetland Treasures of the Carolinas indicates wetlands that are ecologically valuable, protected by conservation plans, and home to an abundance of plant and animal diversity.
Volunteer Wetland Monitoring Program
Carolina Wetlands Association is partnering with North Carolina State University and RTI International through an EPA-funded grant to employ a new strategy for wetland monitoring in North Carolina through the Volunteer Wetlands Monitoring Program. We need volunteers to periodically collect data on the plants and animals found in wetlands, groundwater levels from wells, and water quality measurements.
The Carolina Wetlands Association is a non-partisan, science- based organization advocating for wetlands.
