GLIN==> American Wetlands Conference

****Call for Presentations****

American Wetlands Conference
May 1-4, 2003
Minneapolis, Minnesota

Deadline: December 20, 2002

The biennial American Wetlands Conference is a national training and
networking opportunity for wetland stewards. The purpose of the
conference is to educate and inspire people to initiate and sustain
on-the-ground wetland conservation and education projects. This year,
the conference will include three tracks: education and outreach,
wetland science, and wetland conservation policy. The conference is
targeted to volunteer and professional wetland stewards interested in
learning more about wetlands and how to conserve them.

The League is currently seeking presentation proposals for practical,
informative, how-to presentations on topics such as ephemeral and
isolated wetland conservation, invasive species removal, volunteer
monitoring, education and public outreach, cultural significance of
wetlands, mitigation, construction, restoration, regulatory protection
and case studies of successful projects. Presentations, workshops,
hands-on sessions, and symposia are sought.
Presentation proposals must be received by the Izaak Walton League by no
later than December 20, 2002.

Campaign -  a highly successful program of the Izaak Walton League that
combines public education and outreach with scientific and advocacy
training for America's wetland stewards. In addition to raising public
awareness of the importance of wetlands and the need for their
conservation, the League trains and supports communities in
scientifically sound, solutions-based wetland conservation efforts.

Campaign sponsors as of October 25 include: U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency, Wetlands Division; Department of Transportation,
Federal Highways Administration; U.S.D.A. Forest Service; and the George
Gund Charitable Foundation.
