The Wetland Restoration Specialist Group (WRSG) began in 1992 at St. Petersburg Beach, Florida under the leadership of Kevin L. Erwin. Today, the group is coordinated from Kevin’s office at Kevin L. Erwin Consulting Ecologist, Inc. in Ft. Myers, Florida.
The WRSG is a global network of wetland restoration specialists (both scientists and non-scientists) concerned with the study, design, construction, monitoring, and management and restored wetlands worldwide.
The WRSG’s role is to actively promote the successful restoration and conservation of wetlands worldwide by developing networks and by encouraging information exchange and cooperation amongst these specialists, along with other relevant organizations, particularly Wetlands International, the Ramsar Convention and the Society of Ecological Restoration.
WRSG membership is open without charge to wetland restoration specialists worldwide. Members include experts in wetland ecology, ecological engineering, hydrology and water management over a wide range of wetland types and scale from small urban wetlands to expansive catchments covering thousands of square kilometers. New members are requested to register by providing the requested information below.
Members are encouraged to participate in WRSG activities, including the development of the Group by inviting other specialists to join and participate.
