South Atlantic Chapter's Student Associations

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.
