Conference symposia

Symposia are planned sessions on special topics that support the conference theme and that integrate across disciplines and across the landscape. Symposia could include oral presentations, panel discussions, and/or open discussion. All symposia should further information sharing and collaboration on current critical wetland issues.

No pre-registration is required for symposia. Please note that these sessions may be held concurrent with other conference content (working groups, roundtable conversations, field trips, and concurrent sessions).
