Wetland Restoration

 

Did you know Yellowstone restores wetlands in the park? When roads are updated, park employees like Heidi coordinate with the Federal Highway Administration to document existing roadside wetlands, determine how future road projects will impact them, and propose how to mitigate those impacts by restoring other disturbed wetlands of the park.

"Restoring wetlands means protecting my two favorite things, water and plants. I’ve worked in Yellowstone since 2002 and I’m still amazed by the diversity and frequency of wetlands on the landscape. It’s not at all a dry place." – Heidi Anderson, Wetland Ecologist
