The meeting will include presentations from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment and other wetland professionals on current wetland issues, including recent amendments to Michigan’s wetland law, changes in wetland delineation methods, and new wetland monitoring and assessment efforts.  A session on the formation of a new Michigan Wetlands Association will also be included.
