Hello Carolina Wetlands Association Volunteers and Welcome to the Volunteer Wetlands Monitoring Program!

We are thrilled to welcome you to the team of people that will participate in the Pilot Volunteer Wetlands Monitoring Program.
 

This is an exciting time for the Carolina Wetlands Association as we partner with NC State University and RTI International to launch this program that is a result of a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Meet the VWMP Principal Investigators

The VWMP is led by a fantastic group of Principal Investigators. This is the first in a series about these dedicated members of the team.
