The extensively revised, second edition of the Environmental Law Institute’s classic best-seller, Our National Wetland Heritage: A Protection Guide, is a comprehensive general reference for promoting the protection and restoration of wetlands by local governments, private citizens, conservation organizations, and landowners.
