Materials and content are the same as identified in the location-based 5-day Basic Wetland Delineation classes. Expect to spend a minimum of 24-lecture-contact-hours that can be started at any time, but must be completed prior to attending the field session selected at time of registration. Successful completion of course requires participation at one 16-contact-hour field session.
This course focuses on application of the Regional Supplements and the portions of the 1987 Wetland Delineation Manual still valid as used by the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and numerous state governments. Learn the technical guidelines for wetland delineations, field indicators of hydrophytic vegetation, hydric soils, and wetland hydrology, methods for making jurisdictional determinations and methods to apply in difficult situations. Class time is divided between lecture and fieldwork.
Materials include a 2017 Pocket Guide to Hydric Soil Field Indicators, a USB drive containing current 1987 Wetland Delineation Manual, Regional Supplements, Plant Lists, and other publications, and Lecture Notes.
