The Society of Wetland Scientists is a non-profit organization founded in 1980 to promote wetland science and the exchange of information related to wetlands. The objectives of the Society are:

  • to foster conservation and understanding of wetlands,
  • to advance public education and enlightenment concerning wetland resources,
  • to provide an independent forum for an interchange of ideas and data developed within wetland science,
  • to develop and encourage wetland science as a distinct discipline by supporting student education, curriculum development, and research,
  • to encourage and evaluate the educational, scientific, and technological development and advancement of all branches of wetland science and practice, and
  • to encourage the knowledgeable management of wetland resources.
The Society continues to grow and has over 4000 members from the U.S., Canada, Mexico and many other countries. The Society holds an annual meeting for the presentation of scientific and technical information and maintains numerous other programs in support of student research and wetland science.
