Wetland Workgroup

Scope and Purpose

The Wetland workgroup facilitates the implementation of projects that protect, restore, and enhance tidal and non-tidal wetlands across the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  Restoration efforts are focused on projects that benefit species requiring high-quality wetland habitats (including American black duck) and incorporate water quality benefits where possible.  Additionally, the workgroup coordinates the collection and organization of wetland restoration data reported by the Chesapeake Bay Program.
