Grazing Rainwater Basin Wetlands

EC3040

Wetlands have a predominance of hydric soils that are inundated or saturated by surface water or groundwater at a frequency and duration sufficient to support vegetation adapted to saturated soils. Most wetlands support a diverse population of plant and animal life. They often collect and hold floodwaters, which can reduce erosion. They also can filter, clean, and store water as well as recharge groundwater reserves. Wetlands often provide unique habitat that many wildlife depend on for their survival.
