Aquality “Alberta Wetlands : From Classification to Policy” course
April 12 @ 9:00 am – April 13 @ 4:30 pm
Aquality is pleased to announce that registration for “Alberta Wetlands: From Classification to Policy” is now open!
The course material includes wetland classification, the ecosystem roles and functions of wetlands and riparian areas, wetland hydrology, an examination of peatlands, as well as federal, provincial, and municipal policies affecting wetlands in Alberta, particularly the Alberta Wetland Policy (2013). Wetland avoidance, mitigation, compensation/replacement guidelines, and economic valuation of wetlands will also be addressed.
Due to the current health concerns associated with COVID-19, we are still approaching the delivery of this material with caution. This 2-day course will be taking place online via Zoom on Tuesday April 12th, 2022 and Wednesday April 13st, 2022. The course will run from 9:00 am – 4:30 pm for both days.
This comprehensive course is designed to help consultants, industry professionals, resource managers, not-for-profit organizations, and government regulators understand the theoretical component used in wetland assessments. If you or any of your colleagues are interested in registering, you can visit our website at http://www.wetlandpolicy.ca/alberta-wetlands-from-classification-to-policy to register and obtain further information.
