At the interface between uplands and aquatic systems, wetlands are the most challenging and complicated landforms in Alberta to understand. As trusted wetland professionals, we want to help ensure Alberta protects wetlands as provincial policies intended through easily accessible educational resources.

The goal of this free online course is to fill the knowledge gap across the range of Alberta’s professionals, industries, and general public. Our barrier-free approach can help Albertans attain the basic competencies around our wetlands and how the province manages these ecosystems.
