Because wetlands are flood protection,
Because wetlands are the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems,
Because wetlands serve as natural wastewater purification systems,
Because wetlands are fun and beautiful,
It is important that we protect wetlands.
This wetland, which is part of The Greenway in Franklin, North Carolina, USA, is being restored with removal of invasive plant species.
