Webinar: Adaptation and forest management in Great Lakes forests


The Ohio State University – March 25, 2014

The Ohio State University will host a webinar: Adaptation and forest management in Great Lakes forests: custom-made, real-world examples on March 25, 2014 from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. EST presented by Stephen Handler, Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science. Forest managers and landowners have a big role to play in preparing for continued climate change. The Climate Change Response Framework is a collaborative effort to help with this challenge and encourage climate-informed forest management. A major focus of this project is to build a network of adaptation demonstration projects, to provide real-world examples from a variety of ownerships and forest types.

This presentation will share:

  • the consistent approach that unites all of these demonstration projects
  • different ways forest managers and landowners are adapting to climate change

Webcast: Series 2: Implementing TMDLs


Center for Watershed Protection – October 8 and November 12, 2014

The Center for Watershed Protection will offer a Webcast Series: Implementing TMDLs on October 8 and November 12, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. EST. Regional and local TMDLs are increasingly driving the selection and implementation of BMPs. Across the country, there is a tremendous need for communities to understand which BMPs can be used, how much pollutant removal credit they receive and at what cost. Many lessons have been learned from places where implementation has been progressing. This two-part series will focus on a couple of key elements of TMDL planning and implementation.

October 8, 2014: Series 2, Session 1: Local TMDLs & Regional/River Basin TMDLs: A Happy Engagement or a Shotgun Wedding?

November 12, 2014: Series 2, Session 2: Retrofitting Existing Stormwater Ponds & Basins

Webinar: Coordination between Electric and Water Utilities


EPA – April 2, 2014

EPA will be hosting its second of four Water and Energy Nexus in Disasters Webinar Series: Coordination Between Electric and Water Utilities on April 2, 2014 at 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar will feature two speakers from electric utilities and one speaker from a water utility who will share their experiences and recommendations for increasing coordination and communication between the two types of utilities. They will also share their lessons learned from significant storm events that impacted their utilities, including Superstorm Sandy. To register, click here.

 
Webinar: Water, Irrigation and U.S. Agriculture


AWRA – April 1, 2014

AWRA Webinar Water, Irrigation and U.S. Agriculture will be held on April 1, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. With the nation's need for additional water supplies never greater, irrigation is increasingly viewed as the water source for other sectors to ease their shortage. This webinar will provide a national perspective on the water demands from irrigated agriculture and the potential for conservation to provide water for competing uses.

Webcast: Improve Water Quality by Using Cover Crops and Other Conservation Practices


EPA – March 25, 2014

EPA's Watershed Academy free webcast on Improve Water Quality by Using Cover Crops and Other Conservation Practices will be held on Tuesday, March 25, 2014 from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. EST. This webcast will introduce nutrient cycling and the importance of soil health in agricultural landscape and discuss how systems of conservation practices such as cover crops can help to improve soil nutrient retention and reduce nutrient losses. The webcast will then discuss common cover crop types and highlight a few cover crops that are being used in the Midwest and why farmers are using these cover crop varieties. This webcast will provide basic information on how cover crops and other conservation systems can be used to provide environmental benefits in watersheds across the US.

Webcast: Stream Restoration as a Pollutant Reduction Strategy


Center for Watershed Protection – September 10, 2014

The Center for Watershed Protection will offer a Webcast: Stream Restoration as a Pollutant Reduction Strategy on September 10, 2014 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. EST. Stream restoration has been used for many years and with various objectives and outcomes. Increasingly, it has become important to quantify the various benefits of practices, such as stream restoration. However, the science behind this quantification of benefits can be tricky, especially for pollutant reduction performance. Several updated studies and performance evaluation techniques make this more accessible. This webcast will explore several protocols to quantify and verify the benefits of stream restoration for pollutants such as sediment and nutrients over time. For more information, click here.
