About Ohio Wetlands

For regulatory purposes in the United States, under the Clean Water Act, the term wetlands means "those areas that are inundated or saturated by surface or groundwater at a frequency and duration sufficient to support, and that under normal circumstances do support, a prevalence of vegetation typically adapted for life in saturated soil conditions.

For Communities

The Ohio Wetlands Association dedicates itself to preserving the state's natural aquatic ecosystems, providing surrounding communities with education on environmental stewardship, and ensuring the vitality of these essential habitats for generations to come. Through hands-on restoration projects and community-engagement programs, they actively bolster local involvement in conservation efforts, fostering a deeper connection between Ohioans and the wetlands that are crucial for biodiversity and flood mitigation.
