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 and will be hosted partly virtual and partly in-person. 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 will be focusing on exclusion fencing for wetlands as an impact mitigation tool and discuss the merits and problems with exclusion fencing. Site visits will include wetland restoration projects in Canal Flats and discuss impacts due to a steady concentration of wildlife or cattle. 

Wetlandkeepers is a mix of hands-on fieldwork and in-class 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.
