2020 Wetlands Institute Speaker Series:

Wetland Monitoring and Maintenance


When
: October 28th, 2020, 9am to 12pm 
Where:  Hosted virtually over Zoom. 
Cost NO CHARGE  (valued at $100)

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 monitoring and post-restoration maintenance.  

Guest Speaker:  

  • Elke Wind is an Amphibian Biologist, and founder of E. Wind Consulting where she focuses on conservation, assessment and management of amphibian populations and wetland restoration and contruction for the last 20 years.

    • Elke will be speaking on  amphibian monitoring and trapping in the field and sharing a case study on an  amphibian monitoring project and helping influence local legislation   

  • Neil Fletcher is the Manger of Conservation Stewardship at BCWF, and has been working in the Wetlands Education Program for over ten years. Through his work across BC, Neil brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his presentations.

    • Neil will be speaking on post-restoration monitoring and maintenance techniques.  

 

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.


Registration is limited and set on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration is separate for each individual event so please make sure to sign up for each event of interest. 

 This workshop is best experienced on a desktop or laptop computer, and a strong, stable internet connection is highly recommended.
