Plants of the Wetland Boundary eSession – 2017

 

pwb-2017

These 24-hour contact courses are designed to give participants the knowledge and skills necessary to identify many commonly encountered plants found on either side of the wetland boundary in various regions of the U.S. (and adjoining Canada).  Currently the Northeastern, the North Central, and the Southeastern regions are ready for registration and study.

 

The courses focus on basic plant identification, terminology, keying, and field characters.  A self-directed, field component provides participants the opportunity to submit digital photographs of plants they have identified for verification and to interact on a dedicated Forum page.  Lecture notes, provided through the Forum, are full color and either two or three images per page which can be printed full color (recommended) or black and white.  PRINTING OF THE LECTURE NOTES IS THE PARTICIPANT’S RESPONSIBILITY.

 

These courses are best suited for beginner to moderate skill levels and are ideal to prepare for a wetland delineation course.

 

A list of plant species covered in the Northeastern Region course can be seen here.  A list of plant species covered in the North Central Region can be seen here.  A list of plant species covered in the Southeastern Region can be seen here.  These lists are examples of species; they do not necessarily include each species or may not be 100% consistent with the information within the various courses because we are continuously working on the courses and things might change slightly.  Instructor: Knapp

 

Course can be started anytime after December 12, 2016, but needs to be completed by November 30, 2017.

What our participants say…

 

I have been extremely satisfied with all courses that I have taken through WTI and do not have any advice as far as increasing my satisfaction.  If anything, it is incredible that you have started providing online courses and my recommendation is to keep offering them as it allows me and I am sure other scientists as well, the opportunity to complete training during their free time. 
The instructor did an excellent job explaining and presenting.  I especially thought that it was great how he replicated terms throughout the presentations to ensure that the viewers learned them.
