Protecting Waters and Wetlands in Indian Country: An Overview and Case Studies from EPA's New Tribal Wetland Program Guide

December 15, 2022

2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Location: Online

This webinar will provide an overview of Protecting Waters and Wetlands in Indian Country: A Guide for Developing Tribal Wetland Management Programs, a new guide designed to aid Tribes in strategic wetland resource planning and management, including guidance that is more relevant to the unique Tribal situations and more accessible for the Tribal reader. The guide augments the existing National Association of Wetland Managers 2013 Wetland Program Plans Handbook, which provides a sound foundation on the core program elements. The guide was produced in collaboration with Tribes from across the country and in response to a direct request from the Tribes, in order to help them protect wetlands and aquatic resources. The webinar will include an overview of the guide followed by a panel discussion on the process of preparing the guide, information found in the guide, and examples of how it may be used by Tribal communities.
