The conference highlights the intersection of wetland science, ecological restoration, and ecosystem management in the Pacific Northwest, along with a broader continental perspective through participation of the North American Chapters of SER. They invite contributed presentations on topics that are of interest to a regional and wider continental audience of practitioners, managers, and scientists.
