Planning Hydrology, Vegetation, and Soils for Constructed Wetlands

How Does This Course Work?

This course covers critical elements for construction and restoration of wetlands.  These principles are requisite for mitigation projects and for mitigation banks regardless of size.  The elements covered include establishing goals, site selection, defining and quantifying hydrology, preparing vegetation plans, and establishing a proper soil substrate.

A field trip, emphasizing hydrology and site selection, will focus on factors that caused success and how to avoid those that caused failure.  On completion, participants should be able to prepare all of the critical elements for wetland construction and restoration plans.

A bound copy of Wetland Mitigation: Planning Hydrology, Vegetation, and Soils for Constructed Wetlands, by Gary Pierce and Mallory Gilbert, is provided.
