Celebrating American Wetlands Month & Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance 50th Anniversary

Kick off your American Wetlands Month celebrations by learning about the variety of ways that the Wisconsin Wetlands Association is working to raise the visibility of wetlands in their state. Wisconsin has lost half of its wetlands in the past 200 years, making those that remain are more important than ever and making wetland restoration critical to solving our state's water challenges. WWA is creating tools to help people better understand how wetlands are key to providing cleaner water, flood storage, wildlife habitat, and other natural benefits. WWA is also raising the visibility of wetlands through two special designation programs: Wetland Gems® and Ramsar Wetlands of International Importance. Both of these programs illustrate the diversity of wetlands found in Wisconsin and connect Wisconsinites with places where they can see high-quality wetlands right in their own state.

NCTC Eagle's Nest Broadcast

Please join us every other Thursday from 1-1:30pm ET when Randy Robinson give's us an update on the Eagle's nest at NCTC!

At six weeks old, the eaglets are nearly covered with fast growing feathers and looking much different than in the photo from just one week ago. Watch for the eaglets to exercise wing muscles and stand upright as muscles get stronger. Join us on May 6 at 1pm ET for our next “Live from the Eagle’s Nest” broadcast with wildlife biologist, Jim Siegel. Jim will discuss hazards to bald eagles such as lead shot and rodenticide poisoning. We'll also provide nest updates and answer your eagle questions too.
