March 1st at 6:30 pm
Join us for an evening of good food, great company, and interesting conversations about wetlands and nature at our annual conference banquet. Open to people attending the conference and anyone else who is interested, this memorable evening will offer something for everyone.
Wisconsin Wetlands Association is pleased to welcome The Surly Surveyor (also known as landscape historian Rob Nurre) as our banquet speaker this year. Wearing period costume and carrying an old-time surveyor’s compass, Rob Nurre will step out from the pages of historic field notebooks to share the story of Wisconsin’s first public land survey in the 1880s, including how they were completed and what their findings can tell us as we seek to protect and restore wetlands in our modern landscape.
You won’t want to miss hearing from him. More information on this and other key conference presentations.
The banquet is open both to conference participants and the general public. Tickets for the banquet and presentation are $45 per person. If you are attending the conference, you can purchase your banquet ticket when you register for the conference (for an additional fee). We also offer banquet-only registration for anyone not attending the conference who wishes to attend the banquet.
