WETLANDS AND WATERSHED.COM is a collaboration of the North Coast Regional Council of Park Districts and its environmental consultant, Envirotech Consultants, Inc. The Ohio metropolitan park districts constituting NCRCPD are: Sandusky County Park District, Erie MetroParks, Lorain County Metropolitan Park District, Medina County Park District, and Wood County Park District.
These environmental professionals are committed to the preservation of critical habitat, and the enhancement and restoration of diverse aquatic habitat, including emergent, open water, scrub-shrub, wet meadow and forested wetlands, streams and riparian corridors. Through recreational, educational, and scientific opportunities presented by the mitigation sites integrated into each park district, the public can participate in wetland habitat protection.
