The B.C. 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
  • soil sampling
  • wetland classification
  • and more

This workshop in partnership with the Rossland Society for Environmental Action and Rossland Summit School to support Phase 2 of the Jubilee Wetland Restoration Project. This workshop will focus on wetland stewardship, conservation, and restoration. This workshop will support restoration activities at Jubilee Wetland and provide an opportunity to highlight this and other wetland-related projects within the watershed, build support for future projects, and continue to enhance stewardship capacity among community members and organizations within the region.

Wetlandkeepers is a mix of hands-on fieldwork and outdoor or virtual presentations that provide participants with the technical skills to steward their own wetland. Upon completion of the workshop, participants receive a Wetlandkeepers Certificate and are provided follow up support from the Wetlands Education Program Manager.
