Becoming Watershed Wise for a Healthy Wetland

The health of a wetland like Devereux Slough is inextricably linked to the health of the watershed that drains into it, and this can be impacted by inputs such as trash, excess nutrients, and sediment that ride into the wetland on stormwater runoff. Read on about how CCBER and others are working to understand and reduce these impacts.
