The B.C. Wildlife Federation's Wetlands Education Program presents Map our Marshes, a free 1.5-day public workshop, hosted in partnership with the Arrowsmith Naturalists and Mid-Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society. During this workshop, participants will hear from guest speakers about community engagement to protect wetlands and human impacts. Wetlands can filter water, mitigate flooding, and provide critical habitat to hundreds of species. Unfortunately, they are disappearing at an alarming rate and need our protection!
Come join us to learn about the different types of wetlands and how to protect them. This entry-level workshop will introduce you to the basics of wetlands and mapping, using free software, GPS, and your smartphone. No previous experience is necessary.
