Description

Moberly Lake Wetlandkeepers Workshop 2018 with guest speaker Tom Bieghbighauser

When: July 17-18, 2018 (9:00am - 5:00pm each day)
Where:Gymnasium, Saulteau First Nations Band Office, 1717 Boucher Lake Road, Moberly Lake.
Cost: FREE! ($200+ value)

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.

This 2-day workshop 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
  • wetland classification
  • and more

This workshop will feature renowned wetland restoration specialist Tom Biebighauser, who has restored over 2000 wetlands across the United States,Canada, New Zealand, and Taiwan. Mr. Biebighauser will cover various wetland restoration techniques and wetland restoration design.

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.
