Who we are

The Carolina Wetlands Association is a non-partisan, science- based organization advocating for wetlands.

MISSION STATEMENT: The Carolina Wetlands Association promotes the understanding, protection, restoration, and enjoyment of North and South Carolina’s wetlands and associated ecosystems through science-based programs, education, and advocacy.

VISION STATEMENT: We envision a present and future in which the Carolinas’ wetlands are understood, enjoyed and valued as integral parts of our mountain, piedmont, and coastal ecosystems. They should be healthy, plentiful, and support our states’ ecological, societal, and economic needs.

The citizens of the Carolinas appreciate, care for, and promote these natural treasures which provide for clean water, fisheries, recreation, habitat, flood control, and protection against rising sea levels.

We are now a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization.
