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 is a 2.5 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 plant ID
  • wetland classification
  • wetland restoration techniques
  • 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. The Galiano Island Wetlandkeepers will highlight some of the wetland initiatives happening locally, including the creation of an educational wetland at Millard Learning Centre. Upon completion of the workshop, participants receive a Wetlandkeepers Certificate and are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.


For those not local to Galiano Island, accommodations are limited. Thankfully, we have secured the camping grounds associated with the Millard Learning Centre. Participants will have the opportunity to register for a campsite at the time they register for the workshop. Use of the washrooms and showers at the Learning Centre are included with the campsite.
