Rescuing Wetlands
This photo taken Dec. 17, 2013, shows a newly installed gate and pump house at Erie Marsh near Monroe, Mich., where The Nature Conservancy and Ducks Unlimited are installing infrastructure to boost water levels and enhance fish passage between the wetland and Lake Erie’s Maumee Bay. A recent federal report found that the Great Lakes region was the only area of the nation that gained wetland acreage during a five-year period, partly because of similar restoration projects.
