  • 17 Jan 2017

Speakers: Dr. Robert Knight and Debbie Segal

Topic of Discussion: Target one of Florida’s many constructed treatment wetlands and you are likely to see many exciting birds.  Some of the best birding hotspots in Florida are man-made treatment wetlands that were designed to strip nutrients and pollutants from storm water and municipal wastewater.  The use of treatment wetlands is a proven technology that cost-effectively cleanses nutrient-laden water.  And one of the many ancillary benefits of treatment wetlands is their high biological productivity that translates into more birds. Learn how these man-made features cleanse Florida’s water bodies, attract birds, enhance environmental education, contribute to Florida’s public use facilities, and generate ecotourism dollars.
