Description

“Resurrecting the Wetlands: The Story of Nahant Marsh”, is a film about the largest urban wetland on the Upper Mississippi River. The story started long before humankind set foot on this soil, when only the wind, the rain and the sun dictated the formation of the land. The view of wetlands as wastelands led to the destruction of 90 percent of these places in Iowa alone. Wetlands act as sponge, soaking up excess water and reducing the impact of flooding. They are the most biologically diverse habitats on the planet, supporting thousands of species of flora and fauna. Wetlands also provide great opportunities for scientific research and environmental education.

Nahant Marsh is a magnificent ecological treasure that could have been lost if it weren’t for a few dedicated, creative individuals within governmental and private organizations. The film inspires folks to truly appreciate the value of the natural world. Full of rich history and fascinating tales, Resurrecting the Wetlands takes you on a journey to discover the past, present and future of Nahant Marsh.
