Conference program 

Rather than two long days of back-to-back presentations, we’ll spread out the 2021 conference program over four days February 16-19, 2021. This less condensed schedule will allow for flexibility for folks to manage both work and personal obligations while also learning and networking with wetland colleagues.

Information about the conference program will be added to this website as it becomes available. The below outline is just to give you a flavor of what’s to come.

The full conference program will be announced in early December 2020. 


Tuesday’s program will kick off the conference and our special Watershed-based Hydrologic Restoration Symposium, focusing on hydrologic fundamentals and exploring ways damage to the hydrology of Wisconsin’s watersheds contributes to many of our state’s water challenges. 


Wednesday’s program will continue with our special Watershed-based Hydrologic Restoration Symposium, how hydrologic restoration applications and exploring case studies where this kind of approach has been applied in Wisconsin and around the country.


Thursday’s program will feature both oral and poster presentations by members of the wetland community in Wisconsin and throughout the upper Midwest.


Friday’s program will continue with oral and poster presentations.


Also part of the conference program: workshops, working groups, virtual field trips, a virtual exhibit hall highlight our terrific sponsors, and lots of networking opportunities (yes! even at a virtual conference!).
