|Wetlands Restoration Techniques - Wetlands Institute Speaker Series|
2020 Wetlands Institute Speaker Series:
Wetlands Restoration Techniques
Due to COVID-19, The BC Wildlife Federation's Wetlands Insitute has been formatted into a virtual Speaker Series- a series of stand-alone webinars and workshops hosted throughout the Fall, covering topics that are of interest to those working in the environmental sector with wetlands (including environmental education).
Please join us to learn more about wetland restoration techniques with Wetland Restoration Specialist Tom Biebighauser . We will explore the various techniques to restore wetlands, and discuss how to do so with minimal maintenance (without the use of dams, weirs, or pumps).
Tom Biebighauser is a Wildlife Biologist and Wetland Ecologist. Since 1979, he has restored over 2,250 wetlands and streams across Canada, The United States, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, and Taiwan
This workshop is suitable for consultants, planners, environmental/conservation groups, government representatives, First Nations, environmental educators, and engaged community members. Participants are invited to join the workshop with a wetland project or program that they wish to implement in their community and/or have a high propensity to initiate a project/program in the future.
This experience will also provide you access to a network of individuals who will help you successfully complete your local conservation project(s). You will leave with the skills, support, and confidence you need to make a difference in the world of wetland conservation. The BC Wildlife Federation offers follow-up support and resources to participants who complete the workshop, for up to 3 years post-workshop. Full-time participants are eligible to receive a certificate after successfully completing the workshop.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we bring these valuable knowledge transfer events free of charge to wetland practitioners all over BC (and into other provinces!). This special offer is available thanks to the generous contributions of our funders.
This workshop is best experienced on a desktop or laptop computer, and a strong, stable internet connection is highly recommended.
