Investing in Ecosystem Service Credits - Cocktails & Fishtales Presentation

October 16th 2019 | 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Carly Vester | (253) 514-0187 | carly@harborwildwatch.org
Location: Gig Harbor Taproom

Theda Braddock, professor at the University of Washington-Tacoma, will join us to discuss ecosystem service credits. The EPA defines these credits as the products of functioning ecosystems that benefit people. For example, these credits might come in the form of incentive for landowners in exchange for managing their land in a way that provides an ecological service or benefit. Cocktails & Fishtales is a science-social series for ages 21 and over. Held once a month, each event features a speaker on an ecological topic at either Gig Harbor Taproom (3155 Harborview Drive) or Ocean5 (5268 Point Fosdick Drive NW). These programs are an opportunity to enjoy an evening out in Gig Harbor while engaging with like-minded eco-enthusiasts in a lively and social learning experience. Harbor WildWatch Steward Club members have free admission; guest tickets cost $5 each at the door. Cocktails & Fishtales are educational events. As such, Harbor WildWatch does not endorse any speaker, service, or product represented at Cocktails & Fishtales.
