Our Special Thanks to Speakers, Sponsors, Volunteers and Participants for a Successful Conference

On behalf of the Association of State Wetland Managers, the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists, the Oregon Department of State Lands and all our sponsors and cooperating parties, I want to thank you for making Wetlands 2008; Wetlands and Climate Change a success.  We’re still adding up the numbers but I’m guessing attendance was around 400.  Many attendees approached me during the conference to tell me how much they enjoyed the conference and how much they had learned.  Over and over people said that they have rarely attended a conference where ALL the presentations where of such high caliber.  This is only possible because so many people contributed their time, knowledge and expertise.

Wetlands 2007
Wetlands 2007: Watershed-Wide Strategies to Maximize Wetland Ecological and Social Services: Conserving Wetlands to Reduce Natural Hazards; Improve Water Quality, Protect Critical Headwaters, Maintain Biodiversity, and Protect and Restore Coastal Resources


August 28-29, 2007; Field Trips/Workshops, August 27

Colonial Williamsburg Lodge and Conference Center
Williamsburg, Virginia

Agenda with PowerPoint Presentations

In recent years, scientific and engineering studies have documented the value of ecological and social services provided by headwater wetlands and streams. Protecting and restoring these areas is critical to sustaining the ecological and social services provided by broader aquatic resources including larger riverine and coastal systems. The loss of these critical resources results in threats to human health and safety, and higher costs for drinking water, storm water control, flood protection and recreation. However, federal, state and local programs have encountered numerous challenges in efforts to restore and maintain these critical resources. The purpose of this symposium was to identify opportunities and integrated strategies for protecting and restoring headwater wetlands, streams and related waters.

 

Land Trust Workshop 2007Strengthening the Roles of Local Governments, Land Trusts, and Watershed Councils in Protecting Vulnerable Wetlands and Aquatic Resources

June 2, 2007 Participate in the Swaner Nature Festival

June 4-5, 2007 Workshop, Treasure Mountain Inn

June 6, 2007 Field Trip

Treasure Mountain Inn, Park City, Utah

Agenda with PowerPoint Presentations

This workshop was tailored to address the challenges to protecting, managing and conserving wetlands in the West, particularly those wetlands and waters excluded from protection under the Clean Water Act. There are a number of unique issues that affect wetlands in the West such as low precipitation, water rights and high competition for all water resources. The workshop identified tools, programs, funding, and other resources that are available to local governments, land trusts and watershed councils. It highlighted case studies and provide special emphasis on the application of science in local approaches to wetlands conservation, protection and management
