Interactive sessions at the nation’s hands-on conference for mitigation and conservation banking will range from how-to sessions to panels on new markets such as water quality trading, stormwater credits, carbon sequestration and NOx credits. Technical banking issues, wetlands science, alternatives to banking, and the newest information on legislation and industry events will be discussed. And a continuation of last year’s Regulators’ Forum facilitated by the Corps.
