Wetlands, wet meadows, and riparian areas play a key role in climate resiliency. Unfortunately, in the Northern Sierra, non-climate stressors such as water diversions, overgrazing, recreational activities, and fire suppression have impacted many of these ecosystems. These ecosystems provide a variety of important functions, including water filtration, flood attenuation, and groundwater recharge/storage. They also have high aesthetic, cultural, and recreational value, and act as a key habitat for numerous species.
