Akwesasne is an ecologically rich river community. The wetlands along the banks of the rivers, islands and within the inlets and marshes have always been a critical component of the ecosystem. There are over 3,000 acres of wetlands within the Tribal lands, all of which are connected ecologically to the banks of the rivers, the islands and wetland plants and wildlife throughout Akwesasne.
