The Hoosier National Forest plays a small but important part in protecting and restoring wetland environments. Wetlands are one of the most endangered ecosystems in the country. Acres have declined drastically since European settlement from land conversion and development. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Midwestern farm belt states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin account for more than 36 million acres of wetlands lost since the country was first colonized.
