COURSE INFO PROVIDER: Midwest Biodiversity Institute
COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Wetlands

INSTRUCTORS Mick Micacchion

COURSE DESCRIPTION MBI recognizes that wetlands can be a somewhat amorphous concept for many natural resources professionals and others interested in the environment who are not formally trained or experienced in wetlands. Therefore, we have developed a one-day course that provides the basics on what are the characteristics that make a wetland a wetland. The course gives attendees a clear perception of how wetlands can be separated out from other parts of the landscape without the need to have extensive technical expertise in wetland plants, soils, and hydrology. “Introduction to Wetlands” is aimed at those who want to learn to identify wetlands but do not have the need to collect the large amounts of specific data necessary to establish and support the exact wetland boundaries needed in wetland permitting processes. If you would like to have confidence in distinguishing wetlands and the general extent of their footprints, this course is for you. It also serves as a good foundation you can use to attend other of our wetland training courses
