Dear Colleague:

If you find there are more wetlands questions than answers, you’re not alone.Although we know more than ever about the science of wetlands, the policy and legal issues are as contentious as they have ever been, and the implications for California are many.

Please join us to discuss, debate, and exchange ideas with a diverse set of wetlands professionals from a broad range of business and regulatory backgrounds.


Topics covered include:


• Implementing California Department of Fish and Wildlife Watershed Restoration Projects: Successes and Challenges

• Proposed State Wetland Area Protection and Dredge and Fill Permitting Procedures

• Recent Developments in the USACE Regulatory Program

• California’s Wetland and Riparian Monitoring and Assessment Toolkit

• Riverside-Corona Resource Conservation District In Lieu Fee Program

• Exemptions and Enforcement Actions under the Clean Water Act

• The Mitigation Ratio Checklist

• Complex Coastal Zone Wetland Permitting and Restoration

• Day-to-Day Handling of Streambed Issues

• Wetlands and Alluvial Wash Restoration

• An Extended and Interactive Discussion of Successes and Failures in Mitigation Banking: What Does the Future Hold?

• Proposed Agency Template Changes, Timing and Investment Issues; Extended Time to Approve Banks in California; Concerns of the Regulated Community

This Conference is specifically designed to provide you with the most up-to-the-minute information from all points of view. Please register early, space is limited!

We look forward to seeing you in Los Angeles.
