The Society of Wetland Scientists will convene on June 27-30, 2023 at the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, WA to discuss this year's topic: Wetland Adaption from Floodplains to Ridgelines. Please join us for a variety of industry lectures, workshops and receptions with colleagues that will frame the conversation for the year to come. We aim to provide a safe in-person event for scientists, policymakers, and practitioners to share their knowledge and gather ideas for the future of wetlands in an ever-evolving political landscape while continuing to advance the current focus on climate science. Conference sessions will highlight how science can inform design, how design can inform science, and how to relay this information to regulators and policymakers to continue to protect vulnerable wetlands and other aquatic resources in the West, across the US, and all around the world. Our unique conference is a wonderful forum for collaboration from all sides of the world of wetlands. We have an amazing and diverse lineup of plenary speakers, symposia, and oral and poster presentations that will highlight coordination between different wetland sectors and disciplines while providing opportunities to collaborate on related topics like: - Indigenous or tribal interests for restoring native ecosystems to build resilience- Restoring or managing ecosystems to meet subsistence or cultural objectives- Tackling climate change- Water resource management- Soil carbon sequestration- Current approaches used for wetland education and outreach- and more! The conference location in Spokane at the Davenport Grand Hotel is a block from the beautiful Spokane River and its Riverfront Park, which is one of the country's best urban parks. This location also provides optimal proximity to eastern Washington and the northern Idaho region that will showcase the unique wetland and riparian systems of the Pacific Northwest ensuring outstanding field trips for attendees which will take place the first day of the conference along with on-site half day or full day workshops led by industry experts and leaders. The SWS annual meeting is where the wetland community gathers to develop personal and professional connections and leave these meetings feeling empowered and may even find career-changing, door-opening, enduring relationships. We also welcome students and early career professionals to nurture the growth of future professionals and leaders in the field and within SWS. Meetings emphasize student content, opportunities, scholarships, awards, and more to inspire future pursuits and encourage annual attendance for the duration of their careers.
