Wisconsin Wetlands Associationupdated: October 2012

Wisconsin Wetlands Association was established in 1969 to protect the state's wetland resources through education, training, advocacy, and research on key issues that affect wetlands. To our knowledge, WWA is the first and oldest statewide organization focused exclusively on wetland protection. More than 1450 members include wetland scientists and educators, conservationists, hunters, concerned citizens, and local and regional organizations.

Wisconsin Wetlands Association is dedicated to the protection, restoration and enjoyment of wetlands and associated ecosystems through science-based programs, education and advocacy.

Our programs are aimed at the following goals:

  • Increasing public awareness of wetland values and threats in order to motivate citizen participation in wetland protection, restoration and management.
  • Protecting wetlands through effective advocacy by fostering citizen involvement in policy issues that affect wetlands.
  • Building and mobilizing broad and diverse partnerships and a vibrant network of engaged and concerned citizens that support wetland protection.
  • Encouraging and facilitating restoration of our state’s damaged wetlands.

We are developing an outreach program to connect private wetland landowners to resources, tools, expertise, and funding to help them protect, restore, manage, and enjoy their wetlands.
