The Society of Wetland Scientists South Atlantic Chapter is committed to encourging the involvement of students and future generations of wetland scientists. We recently fostered the development of a new, student wetland group at Duke University. In addition, the "Wetlands Club" at the University of Florida continues to support a variety of activities to involve students in wetland related events. See below for more information on these student chapters.
If you are interested in creating a SAC student association of SWS at your school, please contact the Chapter Chair.
