Conference Highlights

Dear Colleague:


Although we know more than ever about the science of wetlands, the policy and legal

issues are as contentious as they have ever been.


You are invited to join us to look back on where we have come in the past year and

where wetlands professionals think we might be headed in the year to come.


You will hear from the experts on:


Wetlands Overview

• Section 7 and Conservation Banking in California

• Designing Wetland Restoration Projects to Accommodate Sea Level Rise

• Complex Permitting for Master Planned Communities

• Cost Benefit Analysis under the Clean Water Act and 404(b)(1) Guidelines

• Wetland Mitigation Banking Forum

• The State Wetland Area Protection and Dredge and Fill Permitting Policy

• Managing Floodplain Productivity for Fish and People

• The Mitigation Ratio Checklist

• In-Lieu Fee Programs, Wetland Permitting, and Regional HCPs


Listen, engage, participate and make contacts.


Whether you are a lawyer, government official, consultant, engineer, planner,

ecologist, real estate professional, or are otherwise involved with wetlands, this is

the one Conference you do not want to miss!
