Come and learn about Nebraska’s diverse and valuable wetlands and what is being done to conserve them. Information about wetlands throughout Nebraska will be shared, with some special focus given to the unique saline wetlands located in and around Lincoln. This presentation will cover what a wetland is, why they are important, the variety of wetland types found across Nebraska, how they have been altered, and what conservation actions are being taken to improve wetlands in our state, including options for landowners. A sneak-peek of some new and innovative wetland outreach materials in a collaboration with Platte Basin Timelapse will be included.
