NRTG Vegetation & Wetland Monitoring Certificate – Grand Prairie, July 15-26, 2019.

This 80-hour introductory vegetation field skills training course is delivered over two, week-long modules. The program focuses on mastery of transferable vegetative field skills such as, native plant and invasive species identification, navigation to remote sites, plot location and set-up, and vegetation data collection using standardized tools and forms. From pre-disturbance (baseline data collection, plant inventories, rare plant surveys), to operations (rare plant monitoring, wetland monitoring, compliance monitoring), to post-disturbance (planning and implementation of long-term vegetation monitoring), students will complete the course with a solid understanding of the re-vegetation commitments associated with natural resource projects.
