These workshops are being offered to engineers, planners, scientists,
resource managers, local and tribal officials and other parties who deal
with wetland delineation in Wisconsin. The workshops combine classroom
instruction with field exercises taught by leading government experts in
hydrology, vegetation, soils and wetland policy. A certificate of completion
and University of Wisconsin-Extension CEUs will be awarded to each
participant upon successful completion of the training session. Participants
will be added to a list of delineators provided to federal, state and local
officials.

Basic Plant Identification for Wetland Delineation 
This new, two and one-half day workshop is being developed in response to
the survey responses received from past Basic and Advanced Wetland
Delineation workshop participants. 
This workshop will introduce participants to the process of identifying
wetland and aquatic plants using technical keys. No prior use of keys or
previous identification experience is assumed, making this truly a "basic"
course. 
Planned workshop activities include an introduction to plant keys and plant
key structure during the morning of day one. Participants will learn basic
plant structure and morphology during the afternoon of day one. Woody (trees
and shrubs) plant identification will be emphasized during the morning of
day two. Herbaceous plant identification (with emphasis on rushes, sedges
and grasses) will be the focus during the afternoon of day two and the
morning of day three. A survey will conclude the planned activities. A
mixture of lab and fieldwork is planned.
