Original Time/Date of Presentation:

September 26, 2007, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM, EDT (17:00-19:00 GMT)

Presentation Overview:

Coastal wetlands play an integral role in the health of our nation's waters and our nation's fisheries. In addition, they buffer coastal communities against the impacts of storms and sea level rise due to global climate change. Coastal managers and others interested in protecting wetlands can learn from this Webcast presentation, which will highlight two National Estuary Programs impacted by significant wetlands losses.

Kerry St. Pé, Director of the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program and Jan Smith, Director of the Massachusetts Bays National Estuary Program, will discuss methods for assessing the condition of wetlands, measuring wetlands loss, and techniques for restoring coastal wetlands. This Webcast will also examine EPA's wetlands monitoring and assessment efforts at a national scale, including a discussion of the National Wetland Condition Assessment.
