What

There are many types of wetlands. Bogs, marshes, swamps, ponds and fens each have different personalities. Ponds and marshes are two common types in the Okanagan. All wetlands rely on water inflow, from rivers, creeks, springs or surface runoff. This pond relies on surface runoff, from a very small drainage basin. Changes to the basin, for example from excavation, or a change in the density of the forest trees, can have a dramatic effect on the pond.

Il existe de nombreux types de zones humides. Tourbières, marais, marécages et étangs ont chacun une personnalité différente. Les étangs et marais sont deux types répandus dans l’Okanagan. Toutes les zones humides sont dépendantes de l’arrivée d’eau des rivières, ruisseaux, sources ou écoulements de surface. Cet étang s’appuie sur des écoulements de surface d’un petit bassin d’évacuation. Les changements au bassin, par exemple l’excavation ou un changement de la densité de la forêt, peuvent avoir un effet dramatique sur l’étang.
