Welcome to the South Atlantic Chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists (SAC-SWS). The objectives of the Chapter are to encourage communication of wetlands issues and research activities in the South Atlantic region (Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands), and to sponsor meetings and other activities that foster interaction of wetland scientists and managers in the region.
Any member of the Society of Wetland Scientists in good standing who resides within the SAC-SWS region is considered an active member of SAC. Active SAC-SWS membership is your way of staying involved in local and regional issues and peer networking. Through the hard work of its officers, volunteers, and local members, the SAC-SWS aims to support regional student education and research, advance public education, and foster wetland conservation, while operating solely as a charitable and educational organization.
Feel free to join us on our social media group pages on Facebook and LinkedIn to join in the conversation.
