Participants in this field-based training will learn to identify native wetland species found in emergent and wet meadow vegetation zones. The focus of the training will be to learn the key identification features that distinguish particular families and species of plants. There will also be discussions centered on establishment of species related to wetland restorations –species availability, seeding, plugs, diversity of mixes and tips for successful establishment. Common invasive species will also be identified and options for control of these species will be discussed.
