The BC Wildlife Federation's Wetlands Education Program presents Wetlandkeepers, a free public workshop hosted through Zoom. 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 plant ID
  • wetland classification
  • wetland restoration techniques
  • and more

The Galiano Island Wetlandkeepers will highlight some of the wetland initiatives happening locally with the Galiano Conservancy Association, 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 Conservation Stewardship Manager.


You will need access to a desktop or laptop computer to participate, and a stable internet connection is strongly recommended.
