May is American Wetlands Month

Celebrate! Learn! Explore!

Celebrate American Wetlands Month with the Environmental Protection Commission of Hillsborough County (EPC) and the Conservation and Environmental Lands Management Department. During the month of May, tour four of Hillsborough County’s most scenic wetlands with guides from the EPC.

Learn more about the true value of wetlands to our community by joining us for our guided tours of featured Hillsborough County wetlands during the month of May.

On each tour, we will explore a unique Hillsborough County wetland to discuss and learn the importance of wetlands in our community. Natural wetlands serve as habitat for many wildlife species, provide numerous recreational opportunities, filter our drinking water and protect us from flooding
