Wetland Partnership Meeting

23 Feb 2012 9:06 PM | Anonymous

Today marked the 6th quarterly meeting for the Wetland Partnership project. Click here for a summary of the meeting. Matt Meersman and Geoff Cripe completed what could be called the first official outreach presentation of the Wetland Partnership Project at the Branch County Conservation Expo. Marcy Colclough is still working on fine tuning the Wetland Wonders hand-out which she shared with everyone at the last meeting. The FotSJR winter newsletter focuses on wetlands and this project. The wetland data should be completed by the end of March. Matt has basically started over when looking at the prioritization process. Matt would like to have 5 or 6 volunteers to assist him in processing parcel data in order to have a more meaningful data set for each county. It would include looking at all the parcel data and identifying parcels under common ownership that cannot be automatically merged. Eric Kerney, Geoff Cripe, and Brian Musser volunteered to help Matt with the process. Over the next six months it will probably take 10 – 20 hours per county to complete this process.

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday, May 24 at 10:15 a.m. in the Three Rivers Public Library.
