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. 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
  • monitoring your local wetlands
  • and more

During this workshop, you'll have a chance to learn about the wetland restoration work by the Galiano Conservancy Association. Explore why and how wetlands have been restored on Galiano Island over the last 4 years, as well as future plans for restoration and enhancement. Then, join one of B.C. Wildlife Federation's Senior Field Technicians, Kendall McLaughlin to learn all about amphibians!

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 team.
