The views of the public are essential to informed federal decision making in the Section 106 process. The level and type of public involvement in a case will vary depending upon specific factors and should be integrated with other environmental review processes like NEPA. This webinar will review the requirements and considerations in the Section 106 regulations and explain examples of best practices. Participants will identify appropriate public involvement techniques in case scenarios.
