The purpose of this seminar is to engage concerned citizens, municipal leaders and staff in the role that wetlands and natural heritage play in flood mitigation.
It is hoped that understanding the fiscal repercussions to local governments will promote the preservation of natural heritage systems and floodplains. Further, recognizing the role the conservation authorities and environmental agencies have in this preservation will helpfully underscore the importance of investment and support to said agencies.
