HI folks, just wanted to remind you of the workshop on the Wetland 
Habitat Function of Wetlands tomorrow at the Hauke Building at 
Champlain College.  We  have a wide array of wildlife related 
wetland issues covered in the morning and 
the field trip planned in the afternoon should be interesting as we 
will be able to tour some of the wetland areas of Sandbar Wildlife 
Refuge that are normally off-limits to the public.  You can attend 
the conference for free by joining the VWA for $5 at the conference, 
and help support our efforts to educate the public about the value of 
wetlands. Hope you can make it!  Please see the attatched schedule of 
events.  Peter Williams, [log in to unmask]
