Hydric Soils



National Hydric Soils Workshop

Atlantic City NJ

March 27-29, 2001

General Information

At the last Wetlands Regulatory Workshop it was established that there was a need for a workshop to convey an in-depth understanding of hydric soils and their importance in wetland delineation, regulation, mitigation and construction. The Hydric Soils Workshop is intended to transfer information regarding hydric soils and wetlands to a wide array of professionals including wetland scientists, regulators, resource managers, academicians, non-profit organizations, consultants and others involved with hydric soils.

The first day of the Workshop will be devoted to informative presentations designed to impart the attendees with the basics of hydric soils as well as the most current scientific information regarding hydric soils. The second day of the Workshop will consist of panel discussions of latest issues relating to hydric soils in a regulatory context. The third day of the Workshop will be a field trip to the New Jersey Pine Barrens to observe hydric soils that exist in this unique landscape and to investigate some of the new hydric soil indicators. This tour of hydric soils will be conducted by several wetland regulators as well as members of the Mid-Atlantic Hydric Soils Committee.

Learn what the important factors are regarding hydric soils, and learn how the regulators interpret hydric soils in their decision-making process by attending this valuable Workshop.
