Why are wetlands important? They provide important habitat for plants and wildlife, reduce flooding, and help improve water quality. Wetlands are renowned for their ability to remove excess nutrients, toxic substances, and sediment from water that flows through them, helping to improve downstream water quality and the overall health of waters in our communities. They are so effective at improving water quality they have been referred to as the “kidneys” of our watershed. Yet more than 85% of the Indiana’s wetlands have been lost. Together with our members, Sycamore is protecting vital wetland habitat for the future.
