ELI is hosting a series of webinars on the policy, practice, and science of stream compensatory mitigation. Webinar topics are based on the findings and recommendations of the 2017 report Stream Mitigation: Science, Policy, and Practice and selected in coordination with an Advisory Committee of stream mitigation experts. The series will cover a range of issues from assessing stream functions and conditions to restoration approaches and long-term success of compensation projects. This ten-part series is funded by an EPA Wetland Program Development Grant.
Stream Compensatory Mitigation Webinar Series: What's Next
Over the past year, ELI hosted a series of webinars on the policy, practice, and science of stream compensatory mitigation. The series covered a range of issues from assessing stream functions and conditions to the watershed approach to credit-debit determination and the long-term performance of compensation projects. In this final webinar, we will review some of the highlights from the series and have a forward-looking discussion on challenges, needs, and opportunities for improving practice. The panel includes experts on stream compensatory mitigation from the government, philanthropic, and non-profit sectors.
