Sponsored by the BC Wildlife Federation, the Wetlands Institute is an intensive 7 day hands-on workshop that educates participants about wetland stewardship, restoration and construction skills. Participants receive support from knowledgeable experts and obtain hands-on training in order to successfully implement their wetland projects upon returning home. 

Participants spend most of the week in the field learning about the importance and diversity of wetlands, practicing up to date field techniques to inventory wetlands vegetation mapping, water quality, soils, birds, amphibians, and fish. In addition, participants discuss ways to contact and communicate with landowners and developers and to raise public awareness and influence conservation policies.
