Conference description

Reservoir creation, settlement, agricultural activities, transportation corridors, and other factors have eliminated many wetland complexes or diminished their natural form and function. We examined how a combination of management, restoration, and stewardship projects can improve the ecological values of our wetlands. These themes were addressed through a combination of one and a half days of presentations, a poster session, an evening speaker, field trips, and opportunities for conversation among participants.
