“Mitigation,” “clean-up costs” and “responsible party” are terms that companies need to avoid. Assessing the ecological risk at a site is paramount to the remedial decision-making process. Help prevent your client from being the next “responsible party.” By understanding regional, state, and federal risk-based standards you can be responsible for the economic gains and environmental restoration of your client’s next project. Implement the preventative capabilities provided in our course and you will increase your ability to evaluate risk and determine the response of biological systems to environmental pollutants. This two-day program will provide you with a comprehensive overview of regulatory expectations of ecological risk assessments from both federal and state perspectives. On Day One, learn about methodologies and innovative approaches being employed to conduct ecological risk evaluations and assessments of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems under CERCLA, RCRA, and various state mandates. On Day Two, NJDEP representatives will take you through the specific New Jersey requirements on ecological risk, as outlined in NJAC 7:26e, Subchapters 3.11 and 4.7. Featured Topics: • Applicability of Ecological Risk Assessments • Federal, State (NJ, NY and PA) and Regional Approaches • Regulatory Drivers • Phased Approach to an Ecological Risk Assessment • Uncertainties Associated with Risk Assessments • Development of Clean-up Goals • Hazard Assessment: How and Why • The US EPA’s 8-Step Process

ENDANGERED AND THREATENED SPECIES OF NORTHERN NEW JERSEY

Course Code: EH0101CA09
If performing an environmental assessment is part of your job, you must be familiar with Endangered and Threatened (E&T) species survey techniques, habitat assessments, and regulations. Whether your focus is land development or land preservation, this program will answer all your E&T questions and help you complete an accurate assessment. Dealing with E&T species requires both scientific and regulatory skills and knowledge. You must be able to recognize an E&T species and be able to identify potential habitats, even when the target species is not present. You must be familiar with the regulatory implications of an E&T species, and be able to write a clear, concise, and informative report. This popular two-day course will introduce you to accessing location records for New Jersey E&T species, performing a survey for E&T species, and preparing the appropriate report. This course will include a series of presentations on selected species with an emphasis on those inhabiting northern New Jersey. Presentations will include information on visual and vocal identification, life history, history of occurrence in New Jersey, reasons for being listed, current range within the state, best methods for searching, evaluation of habitat, and relative regulatory importance.

Endangered and Threatened Potential Featured Species: • Grassland birds (Savannah, Grasshopper, and Vesper Sparrows; Horned Lark; Upland Sandpiper) • Butterflies • American Bittern • Barred Owl and Red-shouldered Hawk • Red-headed Woodpecker • Vernal habitats • Blue-spotted, Tremblay’s and Long-tailed Salamanders • Timber Rattlesnake • Bog Turtle and Wood Turtle • Bald Eagle • Bobcat • Indiana Bat Speakers will include private consultants, representatives from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. ENDANGERED AND THREATENED SPECIES NORTH Course Code: EH0105CA09 To supplement the two-day lecture program, join us for field study to gain practical, hands-on experience with Endangered and Threatened Species experts. During this one-day field course, you will visit and identify the suitable habitats of featured species. There will also be discussion and a brief demonstration of survey techniques.
