Tom Biebighauser from the Wetland Restoration and Training center will discuss the history of wetland drainage in the U.S. and how to identify drained wetlands. One of the main reasons so many wetland projects are unsuccessful is that the builder has failed to disable historic drainage structures. People have been burying rock, wood, brick, clay, concrete, and plastic pipe in the ground to dry wetlands since Europeans began cultivating North America. This presentation will show you exactly how wetlands were drained and filled, and how you can spot the ghost of a wetland drained over 300-years ago.
