Wetlands are crucial for water quality protection and habitat, but many of our original wetlands have been drained or filled over the past century. The Van Buren Conservation District invites land owners, land managers and concerned citizens to attend a “Techniques of Wetland Restoration” workshop, which will provide details on overseeing a successful wetland restoration project. Topics will include determining a suitable site, restoring hydrologic conditions, and establishing wetland vegetation.
“Wetlands play such an important role in protecting our water quality. We want people to understand how wetland restoration works so they can implement a project on their property or help us promote wetland restoration to their neighbors,” said Matt Meersman, Watershed Coordinator for the Van Buren Conservation District.
Speakers at this workshop will include professionals from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Van Buren Conservation District.
Date:Thursday, October 21, 2010Time: 6:30 p.m.Location: Van Buren Conference Center 490 S. Paw Paw Street Lawrence, MICost: Free, Registration Recommended
The workshop is being made possible thanks to a partnership including the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment, the Stewardship Network and the Van Buren Conservation District. For more information or to register click here or call (269) 657-4030 x 5.
