Healthy Watersheds Benefit Us All: Best Practices for Watershed Restoration
Thursday, October 12
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
A healthy watershed is integral to a healthy environment. Watersheds provide important ecosystem services such as water filtering and carbon storage, and wildlife species of all kinds depend on clean watersheds for habitat, food and water. Human communities also rely on watersheds, from drinking water to climate change resilience to recreation opportunities.
These benefits make it clear that protecting and restoring local watersheds is of the utmost importance — but what are the best ways to ensure a healthy watershed? In this free webinar, you’ll learn best practices in restoration techniques like conducting trash clean-ups, effectively managing stormwater, planting native plants and more. Several recipients of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program will also share their lessons learned from developing, funding and implementing watershed restoration plans.
What you’ll learn:
Best management practices for restoring a watershed area
Advice for developing and funding a watershed restoration plan
How to incorporate community involvement and education into watershed restoration projects
Who should take this webinar:
Corporate conservation teams that want to work with local partners to restore a watershed
Community organizations interested in applying for watershed restoration funding through NFWF’s Five Star and Urban Waters Restoration Grant Program
Anyone who wants to learn more about the recommended best practices for protecting and restoring watersheds
