Introduction Jeanne Christie, ASWM

Topic – State and Regional Wetland Restoration Strategies

Jeanne Christie, ASWMState Wetland Restoration Programs, Jeanne Christie, Association of State Wetland Managers

Restoration Programs are one of the four core elements identified in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencies Enhancing State and Tribal Programs Initiative.  Historically, the majority of voluntary restoration program activities have occurred through large federal programs such as the North American Waterfowl Conservation Act, Partners for Wildlife and the Wetlands Reserve Program.  However, states and tribes can play important roles in the implementation of these programs as well as developing and implementing state programs.  Jeanne will provide an overview of how current state wetland program plans address the wetland restoration core element.

Targeting Wetland Restoration Outreach
, Matt Meersman, Friends of the St. Joe River Association

Matt Meersman, President of the Friends of the St. Joe River Association, will highlight a project identifying high priority wetlands and restoration sites based on water quality functional data.  Not all wetlands are created equal; this project is providing information to support a strategic approach to restoration and protection in one of the largest watersheds of the Great Lakes.  You will learn about a process that is helping watershed groups promote wetland restoration/protection to individual landowners and assisting local communities in planning for future development while minimizing the negative impacts on water quality.
