Learn the methods for identifying wetlands from the experts! Using your skills developed from our plant identification North or South and Hydric Soil courses, this three-day course will introduce you to delineating wetlands using the Federal Interagency Wetland Delineation Manual, which is required for use in New Jersey. Techniques taught will also be applicable to individuals interested in using the 1987 Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual and the Regional Supplements for the Northcentral-Northeast Region and the Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plain.

Learn how to recognize key indicators of wetlands (hydrophytic vegetation and other signs of wetland hydrology) and how to use them in combination with hydric soil indicators to follow the delineation methods outlined in the manual. You will apply the procedures and indicators covered in the online class session to perform wetland determinations during two days of field exercises.
