About the Wetland

In 2007, Purdue Agriculture introduced the ACRE wetland to create a great place to bring your family or friends whether the visit is for educational purposes or fun. Wetlands are used to store extra water from fields in spring and used to irrigate crops in summer. Trails at the ACRE wetland have interactive signs to help aid onlookers regarding knowledge of the wetland.
