Science of…Wetlands

February 18, 2021 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Monica Macoubrie

Nebraska’s wetland resources are as diverse and dynamic as those of any state in the nation.  They include marshes, lakes, river and stream backwaters, oxbows, wet meadows, fens forested swamps, and seep areas.  Some wetlands will hold water for only a few weeks out of the year, whereas others are wet year round.  Water chemistry also helps define our wetlands some are fresh, saline or acidic or basic.  These descriptions show the extremes of wetlands in Nebraska.  In this episode we will discover the definition of wetlands, how they function, what animals rely on wetlands and where wetlands can be found in the state of Nebraska.
