Watershed Protection and Military Installations
Wednesday, October 21, 2020 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Watershed protection and efforts to buffer military installations from encroachment may share similar conservation goals. This session will highlight several U.S. projects aimed at building capacity for watershed protection within partnerships with military installations using various funding sources.
Development threatens the health of watersheds but also affects military readiness and training ability in many places across the country. Military installations, water utilities, and other conservationists may ultimately want the same thing: a more protected watershed in mostly natural or seminatural condition that is managed sustainably. Partnerships can effectively bring these interests together. Learn More.
