Did you know that half of North American bird species nest or feed in wetlands? Or that 1 acre of wetland can store over 1 million gallons of floodwater? Or that wetlands act like kidneys for other ecosystems?

Learn all about Nebraska’s unique wetlands at our Seniors Understanding Nature: Wetlands of Nebraska presentation! Come join Ted LaGrange as he explains what wetlands are, what they do, and why they’re important! Ted LaGrange has worked as the Wetland Program Manager for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission for 27 years and worked on a wide variety of wetland issues throughout Nebraska.
