DETAILS
The Stream and Wetland Assessment Management Park (SWAMP)—a project of the Duke University Wetland Center—created over five acres of bottomland wetland floodplain and restored over 6,000 feet of degraded streambed near Duke’s West Campus. The University and government sponsors worked together on the project to improve regional water quality. SWAMP is a model system for nutrient and sediment retention, resulting in the University receiving nutrient credits from the City of Durham, North Carolina. Scientists from around the country study aspects of integrated stream and wetland restoration at SWAMP, and over 500 students each year use the site for classroom and research purposes.

Presenter: Curtis Richardson, Duke University Wetland Center
Dr. Curtis Richardson is Director of the Duke University Wetland Center and the John O. Blackburn Distinguished Professor of Resource Ecology at Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment. Dr. Richardson directs wetland science and management research, including research on phosphorus biogeochemistry in wetland ecosystems and peatland carbon sequestration. He is a Fellow of the Society of Wetland Scientists, the Soil Science Society of America, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
