The Stewardship Association of Municipalities is building an inventory of wetland restoration and enhancement opportunities in Newfoundland and Labrador. Healthy wetlands purify drinking water, prevent erosion, control flooding, increase biodiversity, and provide opportunities for fishing, hunting, and outdoor recreation. Wetland restoration and enhancement improves one or more of these benefits.
A systematic inventory will focus the restoration and enhancement efforts of SAM and our partners, and will maximize benefits for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.
We need your help to build this inventory. If you know of existing wetlands in your local area which have been degraded or filled in and would benefit from restoration or enhancement, please contact Aaron Dale, SAM Conservation Coordinator, at 709.897.4676 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
