This two day conference will explore the design and implementation of ecosystem service markets and the development of tools to enhance landowner participation in these markets. The first day will feature a series of speakers giving a broad, national level overview of ecosystem service market considerations and initiatives. The second day will feature a series of three panels: Carbon, Water Quality (nutrient trading), and Mitigation Banking. An interactive question and answer session will follow the panel presentations.
Industry, government, non-governmental organizations, academia, and landowners will all benefit from the information presented. Attending this conference will ensure a better understanding of how ecosystem service markets function and what opportunities exist for landowners.
