A wetland is the general term we use to describe parts of the landscape where water and land meet and intermingle.

Wetlands include the edges of streams, rivers and lakes, as well as springs and a whole range of soggy lands from sloughs to peat bogs and fens. Although the degree of stability of wetlands varies naturally, all wetlands perform ecological functions, whether they contain water on a seasonal or year-round basis.

We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.
