Excellent research conference organized by the New England Chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists, held yesterday at Holy Cross College. Great strides being made here in New England in the field of wetland science. Impressive slate of speakers and presentations. Kudos to the organizing committee of Paul McManus, Gillian Davies, Cori Rose, and others. Great job. Looking forward to the SWS (international) annual conference in 2015 to be held in Providence, RI.
