"Developing Wetland Mitigation Credits Through Restoration of Exceptional Natural Resources"

Speakers: Amy Husveth, Restoration Ecologist at Critical Connections Ecological Services & Jason Husveth, Principal Ecologist at Critical Connections Ecological Services

Critical Connections Ecological Services has been using the Exceptional Natural Resource Value provisions of the Wetland Conservation Act to develop wetland mitigation banking credits in Minnesota. This special provision allows for the generation of wetland credits through the restoration and protection of unique wetland habitats found in Minnesota.  The discussion will include the means for selecting appropriate sites, implementation techniques, and will also provide information on results seen in the field through required monitoring.

This event is free and open to the public.
