Wetlands Management II - Compensatory Mitigation.ppt
Creator: Cudmore, Wynn
Publisher: Northwest Center for Sustainable Resources
Description: This instructional guide is designed to provide instructors with lecture and laboratory materials that introduce the concept of compensatory mitigation as it is applied to wetlands. Student objectives, a general lecture outline and a more detailed PowerPoint presentation with instructor notes are provided. The concept of compensatory mitigation is defined and the various mitigation options that are used to replace wetlands lost to development are described. Examples of successful and unsuccessful mitigation projects are also provided.

Wetland mitigation banking is introduced including trends and an overview of the regulatory process. A field-based laboratory is described that provides instructors with the resources to develop a “wetland mitigation tour” in their own community. Students are required to develop their own evaluation of the wetland mitigation process.

Instructors who are looking for videos or additional print and web-based resources on the topics covered here should consult the resources list provided at the end of this module where these resources are summarized and cited.

Upon successful completion of this module students should be able to:

* Describe the concept of wetland compensatory mitigation and the mechanisms for its implementation
* Evaluate the costs and benefits of wetland mitigation
* Identify the measures of success that are used to evaluate the effectiveness of wetland mitigation projects
* Describe the concept of wetland mitigation banking
