SEVENTH ANNUAL WATERSHEDS & WETLANDS WORKSHOP
The Protection of Aquatic Ecosystems Using Watershed-Based Approaches
Holiday Inn-Boardwalk, Atlantic City, New Jersey
October 25-28, 2004
The Watershed & Wetlands Workshop will be held at the Holiday Inn - Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The purpose of this Workshop is to further investigate contemporary wetland issues that have been addressed in previous workshops using a watershed-based approach to environmental decision making and community based involvement. As always, at the Workshop we strive to increase dialogue and foster partnerships between federal, state, and local regulatory agencies, non-governmental organizations and the regulated community. This year’s theme is watershed-based decision-making in the protection and management of aquatic ecosystems.
Numerous and varying issues all related to the protection of aquatic ecosystems will be discussed. Sessions will address tools for analyzing wetlands, watershed and wetland restoration, remote sensing of natural systems, and watershed scaled processes, among others. Participants and presenters will include representatives of academia, landowners, government employees, nonprofit organizations, consulting firms, and citizen organizations.
The Workshop will begin on Monday, October 25, 2004 at 12:30 pm and continue to Wednesday, October 27, 2004 at 5:15 pm. An optional field trip of the wetlands of the Pine Barrens is scheduled for Thursday, October 28, 2004. The Workshop will end at different times Monday through Thursday. At the end of each day, a social event is scheduled to enhance camaraderie in a casual atmosphere at the Holiday Inn. On Tuesday evening, all registrants are invited to attend a Mixer from 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm at the Holiday Inn as an opportunity for informal exchange.
