Poplar River Watershed Wetlands

Wetlands are an important part of Minnesota's natural ("green") infrastructure. Mapping wetlands within whole watersheds allows a more comprehensive evaluation of their water quality and flood protection functions.

This project is made possible in part by a grant by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources - Waters and Minnesota's Lake Superior Coastal Program through the Coastal Zone Management Act, administered through the Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
