On March 23, 2013 Partners for Fish and Wildlife Biologist Knowles presented a program on wetland values and restoration at the 2013 Ohio River Valley Woodland and Wildlife Workshop. Wetlands are one of the most imperiled, and yet most restorable ecosystems.

The presentation discussed the value of wetlands to wildlife and people alike. Knowles shared examples of how to restore wetlands and highlighted the wildlife which utilize these restored habitats. She also discussed the assistance programs available to help with restoration efforts.

This tri state workshop was attended by about 100 people from Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. This annual event rotates around the three states and is designed to provide landowners with forestry and wildlife related educational opportunities to help them get the most out of their properties. The one-day workshop held at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, Ind. helped to address the questions and concerns landowners have regarding the management of their property. It was sponsored by Purdue University, Ohio State and University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Services.
