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. This workshop will feature guest speaker Mark Thompson, Senior Research Ecologist with DWB Consulting, who will be speaking on Amphibians of the Peace Region. It will also cover wetland restoration techniques. Other topics that will be covered include:

  • 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 recieve a Wetlandkeepers Certificate, and are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.
