WORKSHOP: Boreal Wetlands 101

March 22 @ 08:00 - 12:00

Free
Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) has over 80 years of experience delivering wetland conservation programs across Canada and over 20 years of experience working in Canada’s boreal forest. DUC’s National Boreal Program delivers introductory wetlands training geared towards industry, government, and other practitioners with the goal of raising awareness and understanding of boreal wetlands. This workshop will introduce participants to Canada’s boreal wetlands with a focus on the Canadian Wetland Classification System’s five major wetland classes. The workshop will cover topics including wetland ecology, hydrology, functions, and values. Participants will learn about regional wetland classification systems, such as the Alberta Wetland Classification System and DUC’s Enhanced Wetland Classification System for the Boreal Plains ecozone, as well as vegetation and soil indicators that can be used to assist with classification. The workshop will address approaches to incorporating wetland knowledge into decision-making and will provide participants with opportunities for discussion. We will use new technologies, such as 360 degree imagery, to bring wetlands into the classroom.
