Love Wetlands?

Come show your love for wetlands this weekend by helping out with the Tumblin' Creek Cleanup!  It's a great chance to explore a local wetland, get your feet wet, and help out the club!  We'll be meeting at 9am in the parking lot of America's Best Value Inn (1900 SW 13th St, Gainesville, FL 32608), and will be working until noon.  Wear long pants and closed toed shoes (that you don't mind getting dirty).  If you'd like to carpool, or if you have any questions, please send me an email (  Snacks will be provided!

Help fund our trip to the SWS National Conference!

The wetlands club is heading to the Society of Wetland Scientist's National Conference!  Help send our student members to the meeting by donating here:  

Donations of any amount will be appreciated, and will be used to pay for a van rental, gas, and lodging.  After the meeting, the club will compile a report that will be given to all donors, so they can see how funds were spent, and what students learned at the meeting.

If you're a student and would like to attend the meeting with us, contact
