Course Description:From determining baseline conditions to project success, this 2 day course will provide and demonstrate to students of this course applied ecology field techniques for monitoring wetland enhancement and restoration (wetland re-establishment) projects. Class participants will obtain and practice those field techniques utilized to monitor wetland hydrology and vegetation throughout wetland enhancement or restoration projects. Classes will learn how to set-up field samplings plots or stations and conduct vegetation and hydrology sampling for monitoring events. Students will acquire and exercise additional knowledge and techniques of wetland plant identification (both native and non-native invasive species), invasive plant species management, as well as refreshing their knowledge of identifying and delineating wetlands vs uplands.
