Texas Waters Webinar: Ecosystem Services in the Greater Houston Region: Case study analysis – AT

April 20, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

For the storm-prone Greater Houston region, the critical need to better connect the ecosystem services (ES) provided by the diverse assemblages of forests, prairies, wetlands, riparian waterways and estuaries to long-term resilience is taking shape following multiple years of increased rain events, severe hurricane destruction and sea level rise. Houston Wilderness’ Ecosystem Services Primer, 2nd Edition discusses ways for determining ecosystem services (ES) benefits and values using different established study/valuation methods depending on targeted infrastructure/project goals. Local and regional stream and riparian-based case examples are discussed.

Speaker: Deborah January-Bevers, President of Houston Wilderness.  Deborah helped create and is now implementing the 8-county Gulf-Houston Regional Conservation Plan with 3 key goals for environmental resiliency, and a 25-mile Houston Ship Channel TREES Program targeting 1 million native Super Trees on riparian corridors along the Ship Channel. She is co-author on Houston Wilderness’ Ecosystem Services Primer,
