Jason Steele Elected to Wetland Scientists Review Board


Congratulations to Jason Steele for being elected to the Society of Wetland Scientists Professional Certification Program (SWSPCP) Review Board. The Society of Wetland Scientists was formed to further non-profit scientific and educational objectives related to wetland science, and the SWSPCP mission is to certify wetland professionals who meet the highest standards for education, experience and ethics in the practice of wetland science.

Jason was elected to serve a two year term on the certification review panel. During this time, he will review Professional Wetland Scientist (PWS) and Wetland Professional In-Training (WPIT) applications for both academic and professional achievement. The process also allows him to work with individual WPIT towards their certification.

“Its an important part of what we do at FNI. I’m excited to represent the company in this new endeavor” – Jason

The first publication from Jason’s doctoral research,  Seed source and greenhouse preconditioning effects on the survival and growth of two common Piedmont wetland restoration tree species, was published in New Forests, International Journal on the Biology, Biotechnology, and Management of Afforestation and Reforestation on July 1st.
