Abstract: 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.

About the Speaker:  Marla Stelk is a policy analyst at ASWM. 
She has been ASWM's 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 Association's 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 ASWM's representative on the national Advisory Committee on the Water Information 
Water Resources Adaptation to Climate Change Workgroup. Marla has an MA in Community Planning and Development 
from the Edward S. Muskie School of Public Service and a BA in Environmental Issues from Colorado College.
