The month of May is American Wetlands Month. To celebrate, NACo and its Five Star program partners will kick off a new 10-part webinar series, “Cultivating Community Conservation: Techniques, Engagement and Education,” with a webinar on May 13 dedicated to learning about the environmental restoration techniques local communities are applying to improve water quality, reduce flooding and protect critical habitats. The webinar will be from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. EDT.
The rest of the webinars in this series will take place in 2014 & 2015. These programs will engage grantees and partners in sharing effective stewardship and restoration practices. Primary objectives of this series include building expertise in the Five Star and Urban Waters community, promoting public/private collaborations and offering an opportunity to make connections with other grantees and partners.
