“Wetlands are among our nation’s most critical and productive natural resources. During the next few days, presenters will discuss key issues in protecting these valuable resources,” Campbell says.
More than 60 speakers and 325 participants will attend the three and a half-day workshop, running though November 3. This workshop is hosted by the Wetlands Regulatory Workgroup, a national coalition of federal, state and local regulators, industry, environmental organizations, and academics.
