The Center for Watershed Protection and the USDA Forest Service Northeastern Area will host a webinar to launch their Watershed Forestry Resource Guide, a new online resource for all things related to forests and their role in watershed and stormwater management. This website contains pages specific to Forest Planning and Assessment, Reducing Stormwater Runoff, Forest-Friendly Development, and Planting and Maintaining Trees.
Whether you are an engineer needing information on using forests to provide stormwater treatment, or an urban planner working towards an urban tree canopy goal, this site will equip you with all the fact sheets, slideshows, how-to videos, training exercises, research papers, reports and essential websites you will need.
This free webinar is 11am-12pm EST. The speakers are Karen Cappiella, Center for Watershed Protection and Al Todd, USDA Forest Service. Key topics to be covered:
* An introduction to basic concepts in watershed forestry
* A quick tour of the Watershed Forestry Resource Guide
* Time for questions and feedback on the site
