Protect Martin County Wetlands

Martin County’s wetlands protections are at risk. A professional land planner wants to change the Martin County Comprehensive Growth Management Plan to allow wetlands that are one-half acre or smaller in urban areas to be paved over by developers.

Watch the Martin County Wetlands Workshop

For more information, please watch this workshop as experts including Greg Braun, Gary Goforth, Maggy Hurchalla, and Jason Totoiu outline the importance of small wetlands, their value to Martin County's environment, and what citizens can do to preserve them for future generations.

Presenters' materials are available at these links: Gary Goforth, Maggy Hurchalla, Jason Totoiu.

Also, please watch this video from the Guardians of Martin County:
