The Association provides an essential bridge between the federal government and the states and tribes to assist in understanding and implementing Clean Water Act (CWA) programs and guidance. These projects supplement the services that ASWM provides on a regular basis—such as Wetland Breaking News, Insider’s Edition and weekly blog posts on the Compleat Wetlander—all with the goal of keeping members up-to-date on key wetland issues. As always, the Association works with its members throughout the U.S. in all 50 states. There are several projects underway and planned for 2013. Most recently, ASWM has launched a series of webinars for several major projects and collaborations, including the Wetland Mapping Consortium, the Natural Floodplain Functions Alliance, and the new Members' Wetland Webinar series.
ASWM embarked on a number of major projects in 2011 and 2010. The Association and its staff have recently completed several noteworthy projects. These are summarized here with links to full reports, webpages and further documentation. For the 2011 Annual Report, click here.
The Association of State Wetland Managers is always seeking new ways to enhance the services and information we provide. These activities are underway but lack dedicated funding. It is our hope to raise funds for these through donations for general support, or through donations to the Wetlandkeepers campaign.
