The purpose of this article is to review the current state of wetland science as it pertains to impacts from urbanization, and to explore the possible management implications for local natural resource managers and land use planners who are the principal audience for this article.

This article shows the impact wetlands have on communities and gives information on what communities should do to protect and create wetlands in their areas.
