Wetlands can filter water, mitigate flooding, and provide critical habitat to hundreds of species. These workshops will educate participants about wetland conservation and stewardship. 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; and
  • wetland classification.
