Wetland News Digest
What Wetlandkeepers Say About WBN
“As a Water Resource Planner, I am able to integrate almost all of this information into my work in basin and watershed planning.” – Wetland Professional, Wetland Breaking News reader
“Balance of stream, wetland and legal issues continues to be the mainstay of ASWM.” – Wetland Professional, WBN Reader
“As an educator and conservation biologist, Wetland Breaking News helps me to stay informed on wetland science, policy and management issues to do my job better. I forward it to other environmental professionals and use it to help students understand how what they learn in the classroom is relevant to what's going on in the outside world.” – Environmental educator, WBN reader
“WBN has provided me with links containing information/research findings that I can directly use in performing my job as a state regulatory biologist in reviewing wetland applications where applicants are seeking a wetland permit. I think it is an excellent source of providing wetland related information to anyone interested in wetland science.” –Wetland Professional, WBN reader
“I really feel that Wetland Breaking News has helped in some ways to steer me into areas of research that are "hot" at the moment, and therefore often funded more so than other areas. It was recommended to me by a wetlands professor to sign up for ASWM for job search reasons. I signed up for that reason, but now I enjoy the monthly updates about all wetland related news.” –Graduate Student, GIS/Remote Sensing, Wetlands, WBN reader
