Wetlands

About the Wetlands Committee

Sierra Club, Atlantic Chapter wetlands subcommittee focuses on:

1) Protecting and preserving New York State's vanishing wetlands,
2) Alerting regulatory agencies at both the state and federal levels when enforcement compliance action may be required, and
3) Providing public comments concerning wetland-related issues.

We welcome and need more activists. If you are interested in this issue, please e-mail committee Chair Liz Kaszubski or call 716-695-3570.

Take Action to Protect Wetlands

Wetlands are a vital resource for all New Yorkers - they maintain clean water, prevent flooding, and provide habitat for ducks and other wildlife.

Rollbacks in federal protection and weak state laws threaten these important natural resources.  New York State laws very rarely protect wetlands that are less than 12.4 acres in size and many of New York's wetlands are entirely unprotected as they were never properly mapped.
