The month of May is celebrated as American Wetlands Month

A report released recently looks at the health and management of seven of Michigan’s most important wetland areas.

The Seven Wetland Wonders report includes Southeast Michigan’s 3,000-acre Saint Clair Flats on Harsens Island and the 4,000-acre Pointe Mouillee State Game Area in Monroe County.

Joe Robison is the Wildlife Biologist Supervisor for the Department of Natural Resources.

He tells WDET’s Amy Miller that waterfowl hunters are largely responsible for the health and financial support of state managed wetlands.
