How can you help?

First, we need to increase the awareness of the Wetlands Working Group.  Please notify your colleagues about the group and encourage them to bring their expertise and interest to the Working Group.  The cost of the TWS Working Group is only $5 for TWS members! You may join our Working Group by logging in to your member portal.

Secondly, we need to hear your thoughts and ideas on how to make the Working Group most effective in meeting its mission.

Thirdly, in subsequent newsletters, we would like to inform the membership about important developments in wetland/water conservation, wetland management, and wetland and water policy.  Thus, please be thinking about important issues in your domain that you would like to bring to the attention of fellow TWS members.  For topics of high national and international interest, we will seek support to publish articles in The Wildlife Professional and other TWS communications.

Finally, we would like to develop educational and training opportunities that will best enable wildlife professionals to deal with complex, interdisciplinary water and wetland resource issues.


Your ideas and suggestions on how best to accomplish these and other topics of interest would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact any of the current board members with your ideas.
