Wetland Replication and Restoration: Let’s Get it Right … I’ll be moderating an all-day workshop on

October 17th sponsored by the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions on wetland restoration and replication at the Devens Common Center in Devens, MA. The workshop runs from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

❖ Hear directly from the authors of a new report describing their findings on the success (and failure) rate of wetland replication projects in Massachusetts; ❖ Hear directly from experts on techniques that can be used to improve the success rate of wetland replication projects; ❖ Learn about the regulatory requirements for wetland replication and mitigation under the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act; ❖ Learn when and how conservation commissions might properly condition and monitor wetland replication and restoration projects to increase the overall success rate; ❖ Become better prepared and more confident when analyzing, implementing, permitting, or monitoring replication and mitigation projects; and ❖ Become more educated about the principles, concepts, and techniques of ecological restoration and how to return a degraded area to a close approximation of its former natural condition.
