Forum Features Wetland Restoration

Forum Features Wetland Restoration

The Wisconsin Wetlands Association recently held its Seventh Annual Wetland Science Forum in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, with the theme of wetland restoration and “navigating the wetland regulatory maze”. The two-day event was co-sponsored by the Wisconsin Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS). Included were the annual meeting of the SWCS, the science of wetland restoration, and the formal WWA science forum. Over 200 scientists, field practitioners, students, and other interested citizens participated in the event. Kevin Connors, the county conservationist for the Dane County Land Conservation Department and the coordinator for the SWCS meeting, said of our collaboration, “Holding a joint meeting instead of two separate meetings brought new faces to the event and produced fruitful dialogue on important conservation issues. The success of this collaboration far exceeded our expectations, and we believe that this relationship will develop into more such partnerships for natural resource conservation. “
