Wetlands must be protected because of their importance for everyday life. Wetlands mitigate floods, acquire and store greenhouse gases, and support recreation. To protect wetlands, community members must understand their importance and advocate for their health. A website was designed to inform community members of the history, health, and benefits of the Roslyn Meadows wetland, including descriptions of the town history, development plans, and wetland health. A wetland health evaluation program assessment (WHEP), performed in 2020, indicated the Typha marsh contained in the development to be in excellent health.
