Seminar: Forests and Wetlands for Flood Management

16 June 2014

Floodplain Forest

On Monday, June 16th, the Resiliency Project hosted its first seminar of the year, “Forests and Wetlands for Flood Management”. Like last year, the Project will be presenting a series of seminars throughout the summer and fall on a number of different topics related to streams and flooding.

This first seminar – which took place at the Farm and Home Center in Millbrook, NY (CCE Dutchess County offices) – was a presentation by Marilyn Wyman of CCE Columbia-Greene, who spoke about the benefits forests provide in terms of flood management; and Laura Heady of the NYSDEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program, who spoke about the benefits of wetlands in the same respect.

The video recording of their presentations can be seen here.

The slides from both of these presentations can also be found below:
