Attention SWS Members!  We are looking for members from all chapters to assist with our new Wetlands of Distinction Program, to help us qualify wetlands nominated as Wetlands of Distinction throughout the nation.  The goal of the initiative is to foster public awareness and promote wetland education through an online showcase of the nation’s top-tier wetlands. Ultimately, anyone would be able to nominate a special wetland area to be included in the program, with all applications to be reviewed and qualified by an SWS reviewer.  SWS is leading this effort and has developed the program, including website and database. 

This is an exciting opportunity to get in on the ground floor level with this new initiative.  We will begin our application review sometime between October and January.  The review process is streamlined making application easy.  Field visits are not necessary.  Applications will contain sufficient information to conduct desktop reviews.  We will be expected to review all applications in a timely manner.  Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
