ASWMS Soils Training Webinar Series- Part 1

July 13, 2016 12:00pm to July 13, 2016 14:00pm

Association of State Wetland Managers Soils Training Webinar #1 of 4: Basics of Hydric Soils

The Association of State Wetland Managers is launching a series of training webinars on hydric soils for wetland professionals and more specifically state and tribal wetland field staff (plus state/tribal wetland managers, local municipal officials, conservation commissions, boards of health and others).

This four-part training series is for wetland field practitioners who need expertise in hydric soils and seek to understand how hydric soils are formed and how to recognize and interpret the information they provide when observed in the field. This can also be used as refresher course for those practitioners who have not had soils training in recent years.

This soils training webinar series is being developed as part of an EPA Wetland Program Development Grant-funded project to develop and deliver high quality wetland training to on-the-ground wetland professionals.

Each webinar in this soils training series will be accompanied by a short quiz at the end to assess whether participants understand the key take-away points of the training. While taking the quiz is voluntary, to receive CEUs for this course (for this soils training webinar series only), participants must complete the assessment quiz. Regardless of whether you seek CEU documentation or not, we hope all participants will complete the quiz at the end of each webinar to help us assess the effectiveness of the presentations and the training session for our grant.
