Spring is lurking just around the corner, and with it brings the chorus of frogs, breakthrough buds of plants, and warmer weather (hopefully).

With all this new life, we thought we would bring you a new e-newsletter!  This issue brings you content about a couple of our current projects on saltwater intrusion into freshwater wetlands and how much water riverine wetlands hold, to outreach concepts like how to talk about climate change and whether a manicured or natural landscape is more preferable.

We hope you enjoy the new information, and if you have any suggestions for content or improvements send them our way.  Have a great St. Patrick's Day!
