Wetlands & Habitat
Stewardship Association of Municipalities works with our members to conserve wetlands and other habitats within municipal boundaries. But what is a wetland? and how can we identify these special places in our communities?
Wetlands are just that, wet land! They are areas of land that are either permanently or seasonally covered by water. The wetlands in our province are diverse and can be divided into 5 different classifications: Bog, Fen, Marsh, Pond (Shallow Open Water), and Swamp.
