What Makes A Wetland Internationally Important?

September 11, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am


The Lower Wisconsin Riverway stretches 92 miles from the Prairie du Sac Dam to its confluence with the Mississippi River. A vital, wild recreational and educational resource, it also harbors important cultural sites and is one of the nation’s most significant riverine systems. Most critical are its wide variety of wetland, riverine, and upland plant-animal communities, which are joined by intact natural ecotones into a large and functioning ecosystem. Take a virtual tour of the Lower Wisconsin Riverway with ecologist Mike Mossman, who will share the important ecological and cultural features of the riverway and how they warranted its designation as a Wetland of International Importance. Mike will also discuss some of the threats facing the river and will certainly share some of his river stories.
