Friday, May 19th, 2017

This two-and-one half day course is a fun and hands on way to learn how to identify, measure and monitor wetlands. Sponsored by the BC Wildlife Federation and taught by Michele Jones, community members will definitely get their feet wet!


The BC Wildlife Federation's Wetlands Education Program presents Wetlandkeepers, a free public workshop. Wetlands can filter water, mitigate flooding, and provide critical habitat to hundreds of species. Unfortunately, wetlands are disappearing at an alarming rate and need our protection.


BCWF's Wetlandkeepers Course are 2.5 Day workshops that educate participants about wetland conservation. Upon community request, BCWF hosts the Wetlandkeepers workshop to cover topics of interest to community stewardship groups.


Each workshop is unique, but will cover basics such as:
wetland plant ID
soil sampling
compass use
wetland classification
and more


Wetlandkeepers is a mix of hands-on fieldwork and in-class presentations that provide participants with the technical skills to steward their own wetland. Upon completion of the workshop, participants recieve a Wetlandkeepers Certificate, and are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.
