Brownbag Lunch Program:

Biodiversity and the Northern Long-Eared Bat

On April 2, 2015, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service listed the northern long-eared bat (myotis septentionalis) as federally threatened with an interim 4(d) rule.  The interim 4(d) rule allows certain activities that meet specified requirements to be exempt from the prohibitions of the Endangered Species Act.  Projects affected by this change include anything located within the designated northern long-eared bat buffer zone, and anything with federal involvement including but not limited to permits from federal government agencies (e.g. NPDES, SWPPP, Army Corps of Engineers, and others), or projects receiving federal funding.

Guest speaker Paul Davis of GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. is a Principal Environmental Scientist, a Registered Wetland Scientist and Certified Professional Soil Scientist with over 30 years of experience with wetland and aquatic resource assessment, ecological mitigation and restoration, water quality and permitting. 

Date:  Wednesday, February 17, 2016
