Scientists have found that wetlands actually function, "...like kidneys for our communities, cleansing water, filtering pollution and sediment, and regulating nature’s systems." In fact, they are an indispensable part of the natural environment and are now protected by legislation like the Clean Water Act, for example.
Photographers find wetlands to be ideal locations for evocative shots of the local natural environment. Birders, and naturalists, know that these areas provide homes for a wide variety of native species or migrating visitors.
