Field visits emphasizing hydrology and site selection, will focus on factors that caused success and how to avoid those that caused failure. On completion, participants should be able to prepare all of the critical elements for wetland construction and restoration plans.

A bound copy of the book, Wetland Mitigation: Planning Hydrology, Vegetation, and Soils for Constructed Wetlands, is provided.
