EPA marks American Wetlands Month

May 4, 2010 | Environment, EPA, USDA

May marks the 20th anniversary of American Wetlands Month (AWM), a time when EPA and its wetland partners celebrate the vital importance of wetlands to the nation’s ecological, economic, and social health. EPA and its partners are planning a number of events.

Activities planned for the month of May include educational displays, discussions, presentations, special feature articles, wetland walks and celebrations, and an array of other outreach and communication events. Information on national, regional, and local activities planned for May will be updated and posted throughout the month on EPA’s American Wetlands Month website.

In addition, EPA has created a new American Wetlands Month Widget which can easily be shared and embedded on other website(s), hot linking to EPA’s American Wetlands Month web page (http://tinyurl.com/3935qyh). EPA will produce a number of informative American Wetlands Month tweets.
