The BC Wildlife Federation's Wetlands Education Program presents Wetlandkeepers, a free public workshop funded by sponsors.
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 is a 2-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 classification
  • wetland plant ID
  • soil sampling
  • wetland mapping
  • restoration design and techniques
  • and more

This workshop will focus on the restoration of historic Ginty's Pond, also known as Lowe's slough. Wetlandkeepers is a mix of hands-on fieldwork and in-class presentations that provide participants with the technical skills to restore and steward their own wetlands. Upon completion of the workshop, participants receive a Wetlandkeepers Certificate and are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.
