How Do We Reverse the Trends to Achieve
Net Habitat Gain for Great Lakes coastal Wetlands?
Join the International Joint Commission’s Water Quality Board Emerging Issues Work Group and the Great Lakes Coastal Assembly to discuss the challenges and opportunities to achieving net habitat gain for Great Lakes coastal wetlands.
Brief presentations will focus on the status and need to assess coastal wetlands, how to advance practices that enhance and expand them, and pilot efforts to set and track ecological targets. We also look forward to hearing your views on what actions are needed to reverse the trend in wetland loss and achieve net habitat gain in the Great Lakes.
