Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS)
invites you to its Annual International Meeting to be held on June
10-15, 2007 in Sacramento, California. The meeting is being hosted
by the Western
Chapter. The meeting aims to bring together wetland scientists
from all fields to explore the most recent findings in wetland science,
to learn new techniques and procedures,
to exchange information on wetland and water policy throughout the world,
and to discover the unique attributes of western wetlands.

seen and heard while assisting
in the success of the 2007 SWS conference become
conference theme was selected to represent the broad fields of wetland science
and to focus on the worldwide demand for clean water and the role that wetlands
can play in meeting that need. This is particularly important in arid climates
like California, Arizona, Nevada, and the Pacific Islands where water demands
often result in the diversion of water from natural areas affecting not only
the functioning of wetlands, but also the wildlife associated with these areas.
At the same time, wetlands are being designed to assist in recharging groundwater
basins, treating wastewater and storm water, and purifying drinking water.
We hope that this theme will bring together hydrologists, biologists, and
managers who are dealing with these problems. Local programs such as the Cal
Fed projects, the South Bay Restoration Project, the Napa-Sonoma marsh restoration,
the Salton Sea restoration project, and the many stream and wetland restoration
projects around Lake Tahoe are examples that can serve as symposium topics
for the conference.
