A whole new way to look at the Swamp! Wetland Jobs in the Northeast (PA, VA, NJ, NY, OH, NC, WV, MD, KY, TN) The Marcellus Shale FormationWith this find there are environmental responsibilities. We have prepared a customized class for wetland scientists to get them up to speed on what new delineation requirements are associated with this project. Join us in June to learn about all of the new Army Corps of Engineers Wetland updates and how they impact the exploration of the The Marcellus Shale formation.Considering Wetlands and AgricultureWhen producing an annual agricultural commodity, USDA program participants must apply an approved conservation system that meets the substantial reduction or no substantial increase definitions. To maintain eligibility, participants must also certify that they have not produced crops on converted wetlands after December 23, 1985, and did not convert a wetland after November 28, 1990, to make agricultural production possible. This class has been prepared to present the technical aspects of wetland delineation so that the farmer, rancher, attorney and other concerned individuals will understand the process of wetland identification and delineation. Students will learn what constitutes a wetland from a regulatory and legal perspective as well as from a practical “in the field” view. This class differs from our US Army Corps of Engineers in several key areas. First, it is specifically focused on agricultural wetlands. The issue of farmed wetland, prior converted wetlands and many other unique wetland types are discussed. Second, this class is intended to be an introductory regulatory and technical class. Field work is not required for this class. Third, this class is offered exclusively online and can be completed in the comfort of your home or office.Who Should Take This Class:
- NAD Attorneys
- Technical Service Providers
- Real Estate Brokers
