Additional Information:

By the end of the course, you will be able to quickly and confidently identify the wetland plant species that are important in determining if an area meets the hydrophytic vegetation criterion for wetland delineation.

Students can expect to see over 100 different plant species, including trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, while learning how to use two basic field guides for identifying wetland and upland plants. Guided by instructor and wetlands expert Ralph Tiner, students will have the opportunity to explore vegetation in meadows, restoration areas, emergent wetlands, upland-wetland transition areas, riparian forests, mature forests, and field edges.

This is a field-based course, so please dress accordingly for the outdoors!
