Registration is now open!!

Wisconsin Wetlands Association invites you to attend the 27th Annual Wetland Science Conference. While we had planned to hold this conference in person in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, because of recent public health developments and uncertainty about public health conditions come February, we have decided to move the 2022 conference online.  Our experience holding an all-virtual conference in 2021 puts us in good position to host another virtual conference, however much we all would have preferred to be together in person.  And we even have a few new tools for virtual social engagement this year!

In light of this move, we are reducing registration fees for all attendees: WWA members get the full conference for $100, non-members pay $150, and undergraduate and graduate students are FREE! We will update the prices in registration and work with current registrants to adjust their fees after our staff gets back from the holidays.

Anyone who registered to attend in person prior to this decision will receive an email with more information about how this change affects their registration and the options they have as a result.

This 3-day conference, which typically draws more than 350 attendees from Wisconsin and surrounding states, will include keynote addresses, symposia, topical oral sessions, a poster session, workshops, a banquet, roundtables, field trips to area wetlands, and plenty of networking opportunities even in a virtual environment. Scroll down to review the full agenda. Early-bird rates are good through January 28, 2022.

Conference Community Agreement & Code of Conduct

As a community, we strive to make the conference (both in-person and virtual) enjoyable, safe, and welcoming to everyone. This has always been true for this conference and this community. To reinforce this commitment, we developed a Wetland Science Conference Community Agreement & Code of Conduct. In a nutshell, the agreement says that our community will be kind, patient, and accountable. Everyone who registers for the conference is expected to uphold these standards.  Read the whole agreement & code of conduct here.

Cancellation policy

2022 Conference

No refunds of paid conference registrations will be given because conference content will be available to all registrants online during the conference. Recordings of conference presentations will also be available after the conference. Substitutions will be accepted. Field trip, workshop, and on-demand registration fees are non-refundable.
If public health guidelines at the time of the conference make it imprudent to hold a large in-person gathering, we will move content online and apply all registration fees for the in-person event to the virtual event.


Thank you for understanding our need for this policy. Please call 608-250-9971 if you have any questions.
