WET Mission


What is the Number 1 issue facing wetland professionals today?  We need more work!  But guess what!  This is one of the most exciting times in recent history to be in the wetland business!  There is more work out there than you can imagine and the need for qualified wetland scientists has never been greater!  The problem is do you have the skills and contacts to find the jobs?  Well, we do and we want to help you!

The mission of the Swamp School is to empower students by providing Wetland Entrepreneurial Training (WET). This is done by offering the highest quality instruction that combines the latest scientific advances with practical real world experience. This includes our core precept that a healthy environment needs a healthy economy and a healthy economy needs a healthy environment.

We give you the job skills to enable you to realize your dreams.  Whether you are employed in government service, the private sector, a student, unemployed or under-employed we will get you working. Our WET program is embedded in every class that we teach.  We will show you how to apply practical methods of wetland delineation and design and combine them with solid business practices to make you the best wetland scientist you can be.

The formula is simple: Get WET, get working.
