Wetland Restoration and Construction-A Technical Guide, by Thomas R. Biebighauser, is a new book designed to help individuals build attractive and functioning wetlands. Its contents are based on the authors’ experiences restoring over 1,400 wetlands in 18 states and two Canadian provinces. The reader will find practical, low cost, highly effective techniques for building wetlands that will require no maintenance. Of special interest to educators are the pages showing how wetlands can be built at schools to provide for environmental education, wildlife and fish habitat, cleaning run-off, and replacing groundwater.
Containing more than 650 color photographs and illustrations, the book is published by The Wetland Trust in partnership with the Upper Susquehanna Coalition, Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC), and the Center for Wetlands and Stream Restoration.
