Learn how to recognize key indicators of wetlands (hydrophytic vegetation, hydric soils, and other signs of wetland hydrology) and how to use them to follow the delineation methods outlined in the manual. You will apply the criteria learned in the online class sessions while performing wetland determinations during the field trips in October (exact dates TBD).

Features of Wetland Indicators

  • Vegetation: Analyze plant communities and identify dominant plants and indicators of hydrophytic vegetation
  • Soils: Identify sandy and non-sandy hydric soils based on the National List of hydric soil field indicators
  • Hydrology: Recognize direct and indirect indicators
