Call for Officer Nominations: Want to join a fun team to advance the mission of the Wetlands Working Group? We are still looking for nominations for the Vice Chair position. Please contact any of the current board members if you’re interested.

Get outside and be creative!

The Wetlands Working Group is hosting a photo contest that will run until October 1st. We are accepting images focusing on (1) wetland related animals and/or (2) landscapes. The winner of each category will receive $50 and a WWG reusable tote bag. Entries must be photographed by a WWG member, be captured in 2021, and cannot be an image submitted to a previous photo contest.

Only one submission per category, per member is allowed.

Submissions can be sent to Phillip (phillipleestephenson@gmail.com) with the subject: WWG Photo Contest. Please label the picture file with your last name, category, and content (e.g., species name, location, etc).

Photos must be submitted by 5:00PM Pacific Time on October 1, 2021. 

By submitting photos, all entrants agree that the Wetlands Working Group can use the images in newsletters, website, and any other communications.

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 Membership.

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.
