Edmonton : March 5-6, 2019 Calgary: March 20-21, 2019

Aquality has developed a two day in class Wetland Course, "Alberta Wetlands: From Classification to Policy", taught by Jay S. White,  Aquality’s Principal Researcher, Professional Biologists (P.Biol.) and Qualified Wetland and Aquatic Environment Specialists (QWAES). This course provides essential background information necessary for making informed decisions about wetlands.



Day 1 - Wetland Theory, Classification, and Functions

This module is the quintessential primer of wetland ecology with emphasis on classification systems and how they are applied to wetlands in Alberta. The ecosystem functions of wetlands and riparian areas are addressed including flood attenuation, water quality and quantity, climate impacts, biodiversity, and stormwater management. 

Day 2 - Policies Affecting Wetlands in Alberta

This module will address federal, provincial and municipal policies affecting wetlands in Alberta, particularly the new Alberta Wetland Policy (released September 11, 2013). Regulations, Legislation, and Codes of Practice will also be reviewed at a provincial scale. Wetland Avoidance, Mitigation, Compensation/Replacement guidelines, and economic valuation of wetlands will also be covered.
