    On May 4th, 2016, approximately 90 participants, representing state and federal agencies, non-profits, consultants, and Universities met at the Massachusetts Fish and Game Headquarters office in Westborough MA to share information on the status of buffer protection, the latest science on buffers, approaches to making the case for buffers, and examples of what is working. The objective of the workshop was to further the protection of stream and wetland buffers in New England. The workshop was designed by a diverse Steering Committee and coordinated by EPA New England.
