In follow-up to our webinar “Introduction to Wetlands Protection,” this webinar will take a deeper dive into the options and tools for local protection of wetlands, lakes and streams. These options range from simple site use planning techniques which rely primarily on local processes that may already be in place, such as site plan review, lot split or division regulations, stormwater management, and others, to more comprehensive options such as establishment of local wetland or natural features setback ordinances. Protection of vernal pools and climate adaptation strategies for local governments will also be discussed.

This will be a free virtual webinar that is the first in a two-part workshop targeted towards local agencies, conservation and watershed groups, or others. The second part will be an in-person workshop to engage in active discussion and scenario exercises around these options. It is free and open to the public.
