Map our Marshes Workshop

November 8, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

BC Wildlife Federation presents Map our Marshes, a free public workshop. Wetlands filter water, control floods and provide habitat to hundreds of wildlife species. Unfortunately, wetlands are disappearing at an alarming rate and need our protection.

The BC Wildlife Federation is happy to announce they are partnering with UBC Farm to host a Map our Marshes workshop. In addition to the basics of wetland classification, this hands-on workshop will teach participants how to map underappreciated wetlands using GPS technology and upload that information to Google Earth and the Community Mapping Network. Smaller wetlands are highly productive for a diversity of species and are also useful for their flood control and water filtration capacities. Mapping them is the first step to protection. In addition, we will be going through an exploratory wetland design exercise right on campus. Best of all, this workshop is absolutely free thanks to our generous sponsors and open to all members of the public.

Sign up today as spaces are limited. For more information or to sign up, check out: http://momvancouver.eventbrite.ca/
