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. 


Registration fees for the 2023 conference

Full conference (in-person):

  • Undergraduate and Graduate Students – $105 (provide proof of current student status)
  • WWA Members – $168 (a 20% discount. Join or renew today and save!)
  • Nonmembers – $210

The above fees reflect early bird rates good through January 20, 2023. After January 20, fees increase by $45. Advance registration ends at noon on February 16. While you can register at the door, a late registration fee will apply. Note that we cannot guarantee access to some sessions or meal selection preferences for at-the-door registrations.

Wednesday evening banquet: Tickets to the in-person banquet with a presentation are $60 per person. Anyone is welcome to attend the banquet even if they are not attending the conference.

NEW: Pay-What-You-Can Registration: This option is for non-student attendees for whom the conference registration fees pose a barrier to attending. We do not want registration fees to keep people who want to attend this conference from being able to attend. If you cannot afford to pay the full-price fees to attend the conference, select this option to pay what you can afford to cover some of WWA’s base costs. Donations by other conference attendees and sponsors will cover the difference. Registration includes access to all three days of the conference. Note that workshops, field trips, and the banquet are optional ticketed events (with additional fees not covered by this pay-what-you-can option).

On-demand only (access as of March 1, 2023, to recordings of conference oral and banquet presentations).

  • Students – $25
  • WWA Members – $40
  • Nonmembers – $50

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.

Conference Cancellation Policy

No refunds will be given for conference registrations as oral presentation session recordings will be available on-demand following the conference. If you are not able to attend the in-person conference and you notify us in writing no later than two weeks prior to the first day of the conference, we will refund the difference between an in-person conference registration and an on-demand-only registration. No refunds of conference fees will be made in the case of non-attendance or less than two weeks’ notice. 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.
