FREE Web cast from Center for Watershed Protection

Greetings from the Center for Watershed Protection!
The  Center for Watershed Protection is pleased to announce a free webcast  scheduled
for May 4th, 2011. Attendees can now save time, travel  expenses and, perhaps most
importantly, carbon emissions, by attending  our training workshops via the Web.
This webcast will focus on the Wetlands-at-Risk Protection Tool (WARPT) . Join speakers
from CWP as well as guest speakers from federal and local government as  they share
their experiences and lessons learned. Dave Evans, the  Director of the Wetlands
 Division of the EPA Office of Wetlands,   Oceans, and Watersheds will also be making
a special announcement, so be  sure to tune in and learn the latest news!
About the Webcast:
Got wetlands? Wetlands  play an important, but often unacknowledged, role in a community's
 infrastructure by providing opportunities for recreation and tourism,  storing 
floodwaters, and cleaning polluted water, among other benefits. This  webcast will
provide an overview of the Wetlands-At-Risk Protection  Tool (WARPT), a process 
for local governments that quantifies the extent  of at-risk wetlands, documents
 the benefits they provide at various  scales, and uses the results to develop a
 wetland protection plan. Case studies will cover local applications of various 
steps of the WARPT
