Valuing Nature: A Tour and Discussion on Wastewater Reuse and Wetland Restoration

Join us!

Join us for a panel discussion on the importance of quantifying ecosystem benefits as a resiliency measure for Miami Dade County.

We will discuss nature-based infrastructure, ecosystem services, and natural capital as a means of making our County more resilient to sea level rise and other climate change-related threats, with a specific focus on wastewater reuse.

We will also share our newly released Earth Economics study on the value of restored wetlands and tour a pilot restoration site!
