In 2012

We began selling our book "Wetland Restoration and Construction - a Technical Guide" on Amazon, and introduced another book to our library - "Landowner's Guide to State-Protected Plants of Forests in New York State."

TWT and partners hosted a week-long wetland restoration training workshop called the Northeast Wetland Restoration Institute. With participants from all over the Eastern United States, fall foliage at its upstate New York peak, and speaker and author Tom Biebighauser at his best, we were nonstop for the entire week both learning, and restoring wetlands.

The TWT finished illustrating, editing, formatting, and publishing a very informative book on wetland restoration and creation for our partner and Author Tom Biebighauser.  The TWT is responsible for distributing the book and processing orders. In 2011 we received orders from all over the United States, Canada, and the world with books shipped to Australia, Japan, Sweden, United Kingdom, Italy, Romania, Iceland, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, and Switzerland!

The TWT and partners at the Upper Susquehanna Coalition began to prepare an In-Lieu Fee Program instrument for the Susquehanna River Headwaters. After receiving comments, responding to comments, and meeting with the Inter-Agency Review Team (IRT)

In 2011 the TWT acquired three wetland protection properties, one in Steuben County at the headwaters of the Chemung River, the second in Chemung County - a known habitat of the Jefferson Salamander (Ambystoma jeffersonium) a species of special concern in New York, and the third in Madison County, the Town of Morrisville.  These protection properties totaled over 100 acres.

2010 was a busy year for The Wetland Trust. In 2010 the TWT...

entered into a partnership to develop an In-Lieu Fee Program for the New York portion of the Susquehanna River watershed. This project will pave the way for high quality wetland projects in the watershed and we are currently implementing watershed models and GIS analyses that will be used to prioritize areas for wetland restoration and protection. We are constantly increasing our list of high priority potential sites, an endeavor that will only increase as we begin to implement the In-Lieu Fee Program.

acquired ownership of a 50 acre parcel in Alpine, NY, purchased a 20 acre parcel in Chambers, NY, and entered into an agreement with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to support wetland and stream restoration in upstate New York.

implemented a grazing project on our Alpine property to begin the process of fencing livestock out of a tussock sedge wet meadow, and to study the project we partnered with Binghamton University faculty and students to evaluate the affects of grazing on the vegetative development of the wetland.
