Plants are the most obvious clues to wetland boundaries. This two-day combination classroom and field course will teach you how to draw a wetland line by identifying a variety of upland and wetland plant species.

Increase your expertise by learning to identify vegetation during the winter months! Most vegetation species remain available for identification all year long. With the right clues and tips on what to look for, you can gain the expertise of vegetation identification in any season. Spend the first day exploring northern vegetation and the second day exploring vegetation in the south.

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

Featured Topics
 – Upland Deciduous and Mixed Forest
 – Lake Edge
 – Disturbed Upland 
 – Floodplain with Emergent Wetland to Upland Transition
 – Upland and Wetland Forest

NOTE: You cannot delineate a wetland without experience identifying wetland plants. If you are planning to achieve the Wetland Delineation Certificate, we require that you complete a Vegetation Identification course prior to attending the Methodology of Delineating Wetlands courses.
