Excellent. Very informative for someone with an avocational interest in wetlands as a birder, but with no prior legal expertise in this area. Please invite him to do a longer, more detailed presentation on this topic.

The speaker was very knowledgeable about this area of law and prepared very interesting materials/case law. As with many short CLE's, this topic could certainly be expanded into a much longer course to go into greater depth on the topic. Excellent program
