Maybe you drive past quickly on your way to the beach, but those wetlands on the coast are important places.

They teem with life, and are important ecosystems for both saltwater and freshwater creatures.  That's why they get considerable attention from people concerned about the environment. 

The Winter Lake Restoration Project in the Coquille River Estuary is about making better habitat for fish and other river dwellers.  Megan Hilgart from NOAA and Steven Denney from the Nature Conservancy talk up the project's virtues.
