The Hudson River Estuary Conservation and Land Use 101 Webinar Series was developed to provide a foundation in conservation and land use planning for members of Hudson Valley conservation advisory councils/boards. In addition, environmental commissions, members of planning and zoning boards, elected officials, and interested citizens may find these programs of interest. Webinars provide background about regional biodiversity, conservation principles, best planning practices, and tools to identify and conserve important habitat and water resources.

Webinar attendees will receive an email confirming attendance, which may be submitted locally for one hour of municipal planning or zoning board training credit.

Note: Webinars are held using the WebEx platform. You can join a WebEx event from your computer, mobile device, or phone. To download the WebEx app, click here (leaves DEC website).
