January 20, 2017 - The SWS Europe Chapter will hold its 2017 annual chapter meeting on May 4 - 6, 2017, in Faro, Portugal. It will kick off the meeting on May 4 by joining the European Pond Conservation Network (EPCN)'s 7th European Pond Conservation Network Workshop + LIFE CHARCOS Seminar: Ponds in a Changing World for field trips and a conference dinner. The EPCN conference will also be held in Faro, Portugal, May 1 - 4, 2017. The Europe Chapter strongly encourages attending both meetings, the entire week of May 1 - 6, 2017. By joining with EPCN, they hope to enhance collaboration in wetland restoration, conservation and other land-use science, as well as find solutions for reoccurring problems. They want to encourage the discussion of new wetland conservation, restoration and management research.
