The seventh installment of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s “Wetlands 101” video series, “Freshwater Wetlands,” is available for viewing on DNREC’s YouTube channel.

The series is produced by the Wetland Monitoring and Assessment Program within DNREC’s Division of Watershed Stewardship to educate Delawareans about wetlands.

The video addresses three types of freshwater wetlands found in Delaware: bald cypress swamps, coastal plain ponds and freshwater tidal marshes, while distinguishing the difference between freshwater wetlands and saltwater. The video also emphasizes that not all wetlands look like wetlands due to their fluctuating nature where water levels rise and fall throughout the changing seasons.
