Thirty Years of Wetlands Protection (1989 - 2019)

We just completed our 2019 National Wetlands Award program year, recognizing eight outstanding individuals in Washington DC on May 7 2019. Thank you to all who attended to celebrate these wetlands leaders, and of course, to the winners who are making a difference for our country's wetlands.

We look forward to celebrating more individuals in years to come. In Fall 2019, we will begin soliciting nominations for the 2020 National Wetlands Awards. To learn about opportunities to nominate candidates or attend future ceremonies, follow us on Twitter (@ELI_Wetlands) and join our Wetlands and Waters listserv ( for program updates!
