An Introduction to Alberta Wetlands: Field Training
June 3, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm$100
Identifying and classifying wetlands is an essential skill for working in Alberta’s diverse landscapes. This training will provide you with the skills you need to identify and classify Alberta’s wetlands through a combination of online and field-based learning. Participants will learn about the Alberta Wetland Classification System and newly released Field Guide through a pre-recorded webinar and apply these skills in a practical, outdoor setting. The Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area of the Beaver Hills Biosphere has an abundance of prairie and forested wetland classes, forms and types where we can apply wetland classification skills, including plant identification and soil and hydrology characterization.
