The B.C. Wildlife Federation’s Wetlands Education Program presents Wetlandkeepers, a free public workshop hosted through Zoom in partnership with Chawathil First Nation.

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!

Wetlandkeepers is a mix of hands-on fieldwork and in-class 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.
