August 2023 Webinar – Conservation Planning in Municipalities: Case Studies of Urban Wetlands & Waterways

August 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

Community conservation planning practices decrease the negative impacts of development on nature. They are also applied by communities seeking enhanced benefits from the natural resources they manage. Ronda will provide an overview of community plans that have led to urban water projects including comprehensive plans, park system master plans, economic development strategic plans, resiliency plans, property management plans and more. Case studies from the lower Midwest will be shared to illustrate how wetlands and other water resources are being managed by communities of all sizes as green infrastructure and for other ecosystem services.

Speaker: Ronda Burnett
