“The same wetlands that . . . thousands of sportsmen and nature lovers worked so hard to successfully protect through legislation in 2001” are at risk in Wisconsin, says the Wisconsin Wetlands Association (WWA).
A newly introduced bill in the legislature would make it easier to destroy our state’s “non-federal” wetlands.WWA is urging its members and the public to contact their legislators.
WWA says, “The proposed changes are part of a larger package designed to give private property owners much greater freedom to build in, on, or near, lakes, rivers, and wetlands. More dredging, more lakefront development, and a whole host of other damaging practices would be allowed.”
