Cortes Island Virtual Restoration Workshop



Event Date and Time
September 18th, 2021 at 9:00am PST to September 19th, 2021 at 5:00pm PST

The BC Wildlife Federation's Wetlands Education Program is pleased to present a free virtual, 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. 

This BCWF's Restoration Workshop is a 1.5 Day workshop that educates participants about wetland conservation and restoration projects. Upon community request, BCWF hosts the 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
  • wetland classification
  • and more

The virtual restoration workshop is a mix of in-class presentations and interactive group activities that provide participants with the technical skills to steward their own wetland. Upon completion of the workshop, participants are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.
