A Wetland is defined as an area where water covers the soil, or is near the surface of the soil all year or at specific times during the year. Wetlands can support both aquatic and land-dwelling species, and can vary widely because differences in soil, climate, water chemistry, vegetation and other factors. Tidal Wetlands can be found along the Atlantic, Pacific, Alaskan and Gulf coasts. The salt water and the fluctuating water levels combine to create a rather difficult environment for most plants. Non-Tidal wetlands are most common on floodplains along rivers and streams in isolated depressions surrounded by dry land.

Wetland Restoration is the restoration of a ruined wetland or former wetland to its preexisting condition, or a condition as close to that as possible. The process requires expertise, resources, and commitment from many different parties. Ideally, a successfully restored wetland will mimic the functions of a healthy natural wetland.

All restoration projects require planning, implementation, monitoring, and management. Many projects require a team with expertise in ecology, hydrology, engineering, and environmental planning. To find out how August Mack can help with your restoration needs, click here!
