Boreal Forest takes center stage during Wetlands America Trust meeting

North America's Boreal Forest is the world's largest remaining intact, productive ecosystem encompassing more than 1.5 billion acres of forest, wetlands, lakes and streams that remain largely pristine but potentially threatened. To see firsthand the ongoing efforts to conserve this vital ecosystem that accounts for 25 percent of the world's remaining intact forest and more than a fourth of the world’s wetlands, members of Ducks Unlimited's Wetlands America Trust (WAT) board chose the location for their annual spring meeting. Discussions during the three-day gathering centered on the Boreal Forest's importance to North America's wildlife and people.
