The Science Advisory Panel consists of leading researchers and restoration practitioners in fields related to wetlands science. They identify key scientific questions, develop position papers for the Board of Governors’ consideration, and work with the Wetland Managers Group to ensure that management decisions are based in sound science. The SAP has attracted over $3 million dollars in grants and in-kind services from agencies such as NOAA, EPA, FWS, and USGS to develop regional wetlands assessment models and tools to help us measure progress towards our regional goals.
