Wetland Delineation Workshop
In Beautiful Austin Carey Forest
April 20-21, 2020
This is a comprehensive 2-day course focusing on all parameters of the state wetland and surface water delineation methodology. Participants will be taught criteria listed in Ch 62-340 Florida Administrative Code to accurately define and defend their wetland delineations. Hydric soils, the area common wetland and transitional vegetation, and hydrologic indicators will be taught in the classroom and reinforced during field exercises. Participants will be required to work through the state wetland data form and adequately document field sites. Following this workshop participants are expected to have the skills to delineate up to moderately difficult wetlands. Approved for 1.06 equivalent semester hours for PWS.
Who Should Attend?
Environmental consultants, regulatory, private practitioners and governmental agency professionals involved in wetland delineation, and land management specialists including aquatic maintenance, conservation and/or restoration professionals.
