Wetlands mitigation: A Question of Survival

A Question of Survival from OurWaterWebs on Vimeo.

Mitigation: Unnecessary Destruction or Viable Alternative?” A look at the wisdom of permitting development on wetlands.

This video is among those produced by students at Kent State University’s Stark campus under the direction of biology and journalism faculty.  It is part of a multidisciplinary study of the local environment called OurWaterWebs and based south of Cleveland, just outside of the Great Lakes watershed.

While technically outside of Echo’s news community, we think it close enough to feature yet another university-based effort at reporting news and information in the context of a watershed.

The course was created with support from the H.W. Hoover Foundation and Ali Habashi of the University of Miami’s Arnold Center for Confluent Media.
