Wetland Restoration: Contemporary Issues & Lessons Learned
Location:  Online
Time:  2:00 PM - 3:00 PM 

Online - Webinar
August 3, 2017
2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time

Numerous studies have documented the shortcomings of wetland mitigation and voluntary restoration projects to achieve stated goals. There is general agreement among restoration professionals that the science exists to achieve restoration goals and that wetland restoration performance will improve if certain barriers are addressed. In 2013, the Association of State Wetland Managers began to identify some of the barriers and established a national work group of 25 restoration experts, including practitioners, academics, consultants, regulators, and policy makers, to further identify and analyze these barriers and develop recommendations to address them. This project spanned two US EPA Wetland Program Development Grant cycles and included 24 educational webinars, monthly work group conference calls and outreach at several national events, culminating in a white paper that summarizes the project's findings. This presentation will provide an overview of the white paper's findings and provide strategic recommendations to improve wetland restoration outcomes.

Marla Stelk is a Policy Analyst at the Association of State Wetland Managers (ASWM). She has been ASWMís project leader for two U.S. EPA wetland restoration grants and coordinates a wetland restoration workgroup with the goal of identifying barriers, articulating solutions and implementing strategies to improve restoration outcomes. Marla coordinates and moderates the Wetland Mapping Consortium and the Natural Floodplain Functions Alliance webinar series. She is also the Associationís Communications Team leader and the Editor of Wetland Breaking News. Marla has been involved in climate change science and policy for 20 years and is currently serving as ASWMís representative on the national Advisory Committee on the Water Information Water Resources Adaptation to Climate Change Workgroup. Marla has a MA in Community Planning and Development from the Edward S. Muskie School of Public Service and a BA in Environmental Issues from Colorado College.
