Environmental mitigation in Florida is trending toward greater use of mitigation banks, while onsite mitigation remains a viable option in fewer and fewer instances.  This carefully designed course will address practical considerations and the selection of mitigation options, including economics, liability issues, and long term management requirements.  This very informative course will make use of case studies and legal analyses to provide insight into evolving agency practices in this area.  This course should leave you well informed on the opportunity and obstacles of using mitigation to satisfy the requirements of obtaining a permit at the state, regional or local level.  Excellent course designed for audience participation.
