Alberta NAWMP facilitates discussion forums, providing a space for professionals to focus on collaborative and engaging dialogue. This opportunity fosters sharing of ideas, enhances knowledge and builds upon years of experience and wisdom among those working in fields related to wetland protection and management.

On November 14, 2018, 50 wetland professionals participated in just such a forum to hear about and discuss “The Dollars and Cents of Wetlands.”

Eight speakers with a wide diversity of knowledge and experience shared their perspectives and engaged in thoughtful discussions with each other and with participants. Topics looked in detail at how we value ecosystem services, the challenges facing producers and developers when it comes to protecting wetlands, how compliance with the Alberta Wetland Policy is assured, and the economic benefits and incentives available to help conserve our wetlands.

The Summary Report of the 2018 Alberta NAWMP Partnership Forum is now available.

Here are some of the presentations from this year’s Fall Forum:
