Access to practical tools & resources to help Canadians better understand and conserve wetlands.


The Wetlands Institute is a 7-day hands-on program that educates participants about wetlands stewardship and wetland construction skills. Participants are encouraged to come with a wetland project that they can implement upon returning home from the Institute.

Since 1998, the Institute has been held bi-annually in selected communities across British Columbia. Participants spend most of the week in the field learning about the importance and diversity of wetlands, practicing up to date field techniques to inventory wetlands vegetation mapping, water quality, soils, birds, amphibians, and fish. Most importantly, participants discuss ways to contact and communicate with landowners and developers and to raise public awareness and influence conservation policies.
