On September 29-30, 2022, Gunster Shareholder Eric Olsen will speak at the Florida Association of Mitigation Bankers (FAMB) Mitigation Banking Workshop in Jacksonville. Since 2008, FAMB has been working hard to promote and advance an efficient and successful private compensatory wetland and conservation marketplace that supports economic development and ecological function through the restoration of wetlands and species’ habitats throughout the State of Florida.
During this workshop, state and federal regulatory agencies will provide updates and there will be panel discussions on multi-benefit mitigation banks and the Florida Wildlife Corridor Foundation, as well as a guided discussion on proposed revisions to Rule 642-342.
Inside and outside of Florida, Eric T. Olsen assists myriad business and individual clients on environmental law and regulatory matters. A Florida native, for nearly three decades Eric has focused his practice on wetland regulation, mitigation banking, stormwater regulation, consumptive use or water use permitting, water supply and underground injection control. Beginning as a St. Johns River Water Management District in-house attorney, Eric worked with other water management districts to develop the Environmental Resource Permitting program, statutes and rules governing wetland mitigation banks, and rules and policies affecting water supply and water use.
