Details/Description

You cannot delineate a wetland without experience identifying wetland plants. If you are planning to achieve the Wetland Delineation Certificate, we require that you complete this course prior to attending the Methodology for Delineating Wetlands course. Plants are the most obvious clues to wetland boundaries. This two-day combination classroom and field course will teach you how to quickly and confidently identify plant species that are important in determining if an area meets the hydrophytic vegetation criterion for wetland delineation, focusing on ID characteristics. Learn basic plant ID groups, basic plant morphology and some basic botanical terminology. This is a field-based course, so please dress accordingly for the outdoors.
