The annual Wetland Science Conference
Join other scientists and professionals of the wetland and water community of Wisconsin and the upper Midwest to:
- Share your wetland research, restoration, management, or outreach program;
- Learn new identification and assessment approaches and techniques;
- Hear about approaches to incorporating wetlands into watershed & community planning;

Who is Wisconsin Wetlands Association?
This conference is hosted by Wisconsin Wetlands Association, a statewide non-profit dedicated to the protection, restoration, and enjoyment of wetlands and associated ecosystems through science-based programs, education, and advocacy. We envision a state where wetlands are healthy and plentiful and support ecological and societal needs, and where citizens care for, appreciate, and interact with these natural resources.

“A great opportunity to learn, network, and exchange ideas about wetlands that applies both to Wisconsin wetlands and wetlands everywhere.”
“I’ve been to other scientific conferences that do a great job of relaying science. However, this conference, those in attendance, and those who ran it, made me feel so welcome. The personal connectiveness resonated beyond science sharing.”
