Natural Resource Inventories Webinar January 26, 1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Image of the cover of the guidebookNatural areas including forests, wetlands, fields, and stream corridors provide numerous benefits to communities, from clean air and water and flood control to scenic beauty and opportunities for recreation. By mapping and describing a community's natural assets, a natural resources inventory (NRI) provides a foundation for local planning and decision-making that proactively considers habitat and water resources. NRIs also provide a starting point for identifying conservation priorities and developing community plans, zoning updates, and nature-based climate adaptation strategies.

Since 2015, the Hudson River Estuary Program has been providing training, technical assistance, and grants to support the development and application of NRIs in the estuary watershed. This webinar will provide an overview of approaches to creating an NRI and feature case studies from two recently completed projects in Columbia County and the City of Poughkeepsie. The webinar takes place Tuesday, January 26, 1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. and is part of the Conservation and Land Use Webinar 101 series.

Presenters include Ingrid Haeckel, DEC Hudson River Estuary Program and Cornell University; Christine Vanderlan, Columbia Land Conservancy; Jen Rubbo, Environmental Cooperative at the Vassar Barns; and Natalie Quinn, City of Poughkeepsie.

Webinar attendees will receive an email confirming attendance, which may be submitted locally for 1.5 hours of municipal planning or zoning board training credit. You can join this WebEx event from your computer, mobile device, or phone. Please download the WebEx app prior to the webinar. If you have difficulty joining the meeting, please visit trouble shooting meetings.
