You will hear in-depth discussion on these hot topics:

Wetlands Overview

• Section 7 and Conservation Strategies

Whether you are a private practitioner, government representative, engineer, developer, planner, environmental professional or in any way involved with or affected by wetlands issues, this is the one Conference you won’t want to miss.

We look forward to seeing you in April.
