|The Turtle Conservationist|

|The Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program
The Great Lakes ecosystem of North America is the largest system of fresh surface water on earth and provides valuable services ranging from clean drinking water sources to wildlife viewing. Several of these services depend on the presence of vigorous, healthy wetlands - both along the coastline and in interior areas. Many of these wetlands have been lost through draining or filling, degraded by pollution inputs, or altered by invading plants and animals. Among wetland types, marshes (those dominated by emergent plants like cattail, sedges, or bulrush) are especially important habitat for a wide array of wildlife species.
