SWS 2017 Annual Meeting

Jun 05, 2017 08:00am -
Jun 08, 2017 11:00pm

Event Description

The Society of Wetland Scientists’ 2017 Annual Meeting will be held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan, Puerto Rico, June 5-8, 2017. This unique meeting is themed Celebrating Wetland Diversity Across the Landscape: Mountains to Mangroves.

The program will highlight the interdisciplinary nature of wetland science and practice, how wetlands function, and how protection and restoration play a significant role in the health of our ecosystems and society. The importance of using sound science to inform management strategies and enhance environmental values to society will also be emphasized. There are many linkages among wetland science, application, economics, and policy which are sure to engage the diverse membership of SWS including researchers, practitioners, regulators, and policymakers. This meeting will also be a prime opportunity to engage the public and private wetland professionals with field trips and workshops that will focus on current wetland topics and issues.

San Juan was strategically selected as the host destination for this event in order to further underline the theme of diversity as there are significant connections between protecting and restoring wetlands in Puerto Rico, providing ecosystem services, and the resulting economic returns in the U.S. and abroad, including in Mexico, the Caribbean, and in Central and South America.
