    Yes, they do.  There are wetlands in enclosed bay areas as well as along the shorelines.  The 4 types of wetlands in the Great Lakes region are marshes, bogs, swamps and fens, each with their own characteristics, wildlife and vegetation.  Unfortunately, there is a familiar story here: more than 2/3 of the wetlands have been filled in or drained for different reasons.
