Join the Movement: Be a Champion for Indiana Wetlands

Wetlands are not just beautiful and unique; they are essential to the health and future of our Hoosier State. They help purify our water, provide habitat for countless species, store carbon, and protect our communities from flooding. By participating in the Indiana Wetlands Challenge, you’re taking a stand for the preservation and protection of these invaluable ecosystems.

We invite you to go a step further and be a champion for Indiana Wetlands. Create a custom postcard. We will mail them to your Indiana state legislators and Governor Holcomb. Show them you care deeply about Indiana Wetlands and want to see them protected for generations to come.
