Public Education & Outreach

We believe it is important to educate the general public so they can better understand the value of our natural resources as well as the benefits, both environmental and financial, associated with mitigation banking and ecosystem restoration.  Our perspective comes from a combined knowledge base and practical experience gained through over two decades of implementing and monitoring successful projects.  WLS staff have participated in numerous workshops, seminars and presentations to provide insight and background for the mitigation industry on ecosystem restoration.  Our diverse audience has included financial investors, regulatory agencies, state transportation officials, consultants, schools, conservation groups, farmers, watershed associations, policy makers, community members, and municipalities throughout the United States.
