EDM presents on Wetlands in China

September 6, 2016

EDM Principal, Margot Young, recently presented at the 10th INTECOL International Wetlands Conference in Nanjing, China. Margot presented case studies from EDMs own work, demonstrating how land development approaches to wetland conservation can move beyond strategies of avoidance and preservation to integrative solutions that work with the hydrology of the landscape. Margot attended with long time collaborator and keynote conference speaker, Betsy Damon. Damon is the founder of Keepers of the Waters, a nonprofit organization that encourages art, science and community projects for the understanding and remediation of living water systems. It serves as an international network for people engaged in projects that transform our relationship to water. Margot has sat on the Keepers’ Board of Directors since 2014.
