Wetlands are part of the most productive and important ecosystems in the world. They are complex systems that require years of study to understand their classification types, cycles, and functions. With high rates of industrial and residential development occurring in Alberta and the implementation of the new Alberta Wetland Policy, many people making decisions regarding the fate of these ecosystems do not have the time or the resources to achieve this level of knowledge. To bridge this gap and foster a greater understanding of wetlands in Alberta, Aquality has developed two Wetland Courses: Alberta Wetlands: From Classification to Policy and Alberta Wetlands: Field Assessment Course. Both courses are taught by Aquality’s Professional Biologists (P.Biol.) and Qualified Wetland and Aquatic Environment Specialists (QWAES). These courses provide essential information necessary for making informed decisions about wetlands in Alberta.

The Alberta Wetlands: From Classification to Policy course covers wetland classification and delineation, hydrology, wetland vegetation, riparian zones, wetland functions, and an overview of all wetland and water-related legislation and policies. Our course is ideal for municipalities, developers, land surveyors, planners and consultants. This is a 2 day classroom style course including modules in Wetland Classification, Policy and Applied Assessment Skills. 

The Alberta Wetlands: Field Assessment is a 1 day outdoor course designed for participants to put classroom theory to practice. Participants gain hands on experience identifying key wetland plant species. Expert instructors will be on hand to answer questions and provide guidance. Participants will be exposed to several different wetland classes common to the white-zone of the province following the new Alberta Wetland Classification System.  This course is ideal for those looking to improve their wetland botany skills.
