Wetland Restoration in the Landscape

  The destruction of wetlands may have dropped out of the headlines, but they are still disappearing at a rapid rate across the West. Whether it's possible to restore wetlands will be the focus of the conference, Wetland Restoration in the Landscape, May 5-7 in Corvallis, Ore. The Society for Wetland Scientists and the Society for Ecological Restoration Northwest chapters are co-sponsoring this event, which will cover 15 topics ranging from restoration policy, wetlands and salmon, and lessons learned from previous restoration projects.
