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 is a 2.5 Day workshop that educates 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
- wetland classification
- and more
This course will greatly improve the level of knowledge and awareness of wetland conservation and protection among community members, particularly the importance and values of wetlands.
Wetlandkeepers is a mix of hands-on fieldwork and outdoor presentations that provide participants with the technical skills to steward their own wetland. Upon completion of the workshop, participants receive a Wetlandkeepers Certificate and are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.
