Wisconsin Wetlands Association invites you to participate in the 27th Annual Wetland Science Conference, to be held February 15-17, 2022, at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Convention Center in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

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;

Discuss the latest in wetland science, planning, and protection issues;

Look ahead to the future of wetland science and practices in Wisconsin and the Midwest.

The 2-day conference, which will draw more than 350 attendees from Wisconsin and surrounding states, will include a keynote address, topical oral sessions, a poster session, workshops, a banquet, and field trips to area wetlands. The conference builds on a more than two-decade-long tradition of regional collaboration to protect and care for the region’s wetlands.

While we hope to be able to hold this conference in person in Stevens Point, we are also laying the groundwork to hold it virtually if that is the responsible, science-based decision to keep our community healthy and safe. If we are able to go in person, we will also offer a way for people to attend and present virtually. Stay tuned.
