January 26, 2015 – LRW Natural Assets Mapping Project Kick-Off
January 26, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
In 2016 the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership, with input from the Middlesex County Department of Planning, is spearheading development of a Natural Assets Map for the Lower Raritan Watershed (Watershed Management Area 9). The year’s activities will be roughly divided into two phases. The first half of the year will include a series of presentations that will help us develop priorities for assets mapping. The second half of the year and running into 2017 will focus on how to use the LRW’s Natural Asset Map to prioritize GI initiatives at the municipal, county and watershed level.
The January 26 kick-off will orient participants to the Assets Mapping Project and to Karen Firehock’s “Evaluating and Conserving Green Infrastructure Across the Landscape: A Practitioner’s Guide” that we are using to structure the mapping effort and orient our work. Contact hfenyk AT lowerraritanwatershed DOT org for more information.
We will meet from 9-Noon in the Middlesex County Office of Planning located at 78 Bayard Street in New Brunswick, NJ 08901. Parking will be validated for those parking on floors 5 and higher in the RWJ Wellness Parking Deck located at 95 Paterson Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.
