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 are 2.5 Day workshops that educate 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 workshop will feature a talk from renowned wetland restoration specialist Tom Beibighauser, who has restored over 1500 wetlands.
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 recieve a Wetlandkeepers Certificate, and are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.
