Valuing Wetland Services in Southern Ontario’s Credit River Watershed Using the Contingent Valuation Method

This study uses the contingent valuation method to estimate the value of retaining and restoring wetland services in the Credit River Watershed. A sample of the population was surveyed on their willingness to pay for hypothetical programs to restore wetlands. Respondents were asked about their knowledge of wetlands and their views on the costs of restoration. The authors also calculated willingness-to-pay estimates for the retention of the wetlands.
