Further informationThere are wetlands that are saturated with water all year long, while others are dry for part of the year. Examples of wetlands include marshes, swamps and bogs. Wetland soils, also known as hydric soils, can have some pretty interesting qualities! For example, some have a blue-gray color below the surface, while others smell like rotten eggs!
