Hudsonia and the Hudson River Estuary Program are pleased to offer this three-part webinar on wetlands conservation.
Mon-Wed, 21-23 September 2020 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm each day
Despite some protections in federal and state wetland regulations, wetlands are still being lost and degraded.
In three 1.5 hour sessions, we will discuss the ecological and water resource values of wetlands; how to identify unmapped wetlands on site plans and other maps using online tools and in the field; the status of state and federal regulatory programs for wetlands; and how to extend local protections to these important resources.
The program is free-of-charge, but pre-registration is required. Space is limited. Registration will be open until 14 September.
Applicants from Hudson Valley municipal or county agencies, conservation or watershed organizations, and others involved in local land use planning or decision-making will be given priority to attend. In addition, applicants who can attend all three sessions will be prioritized.
Municipal training credit certificates will be available to attendees.
