On October 22-23, 2014, the Long Island Sound Tidal Wetlands Loss Workshop was held at Danfords Hotel and Marina in Port Jefferson, NY. The workshop was a follow-up to a workshop New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, supported and funded through the Long Island Sound Study (LISS), LISS Habitat Restoration Initiative, and the LISS Management Committee, held in 2003 to look at the issue of tidal wetland loss.
The goal of the 2014 workshop was to have an engaging learning experience and discussion amongst leading edge marsh managers, researchers, practitioners, and regulators regarding tidal wetland loss and change in Long Island Sound and regionally. The workshop intended to provide the attendees with an update on post 2003 funded research. It also intended to expand the discussion to consider other wetland losses and changes, how to manage and monitor loss, and identify the role of climate change. Finally, the workshop was intended to serve as a forum to inform scientists and managers about what research and monitoring tells us about tidal marsh health.
