    This three-day intensive workshop will provide wetland regulators and consultants with practical information and experience in using the 2014 update to the rating system for wetlands in western Washington. It is specifically designed for those who will be using the rating system in the field. You will gain a working knowledge of topics such as the hydrogeomorphic classification of wetlands, how to separate wetlands into units for rating, and how to answer all the questions on the field form. The purpose of the class is to provide you with knowledge so that you can fill out the rating form on your own. You will receive a copy of the rating system manual.

    It is important that you already have some experience and/or education in delineating wetlands and identifying natural wetland features such as outlets, boundaries of basins, vegetation classes, and some ability to distinguish between different plant species.


    This course will include two required virtual sessions on Zoom on 9/13 (9:00 am - 12:30 pm) and 9/14 (9:00 am - 12:00 pm). Participants will visit sites with the instructor in Thurston County on 9/15 (9 am - 4:30 pm). The sites are located at the Woodland Creek Community Park in Lacey, WA and Capitol Lake Interpretive Park in Olympia, WA. Please note that it is mandatory to attend the virtual sessions on 9/13 and 9/14 and in-person field session on 9/15 in order to obtain your certification for the rating system (13.5 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points)


    All participants will be expected to follow Washington Department of Ecology’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the training. Specifically, you will be asked to complete a COVID-19 health screening within 12 hours of arriving at the field session and wear a mask.

    This 1-day training will demonstrate the Department of Fish and Wildlife’s methods for conducting beach surveys and processing samples for Surf Smelt and Sand Lance spawn.  The training will include a classroom component with a presentation and hands-on demonstration of lab techniques. It will also include a field component with a demonstration and time to practice field collection and sample processing. The training is specifically designed for biologists who need to conduct forage fish surveys for regulatory purposes, such as to comply with the conditions of a WDFW, DNR, or ACoE permit. At the conclusion of training, participants will have knowledge of forage fish survey techniques and reporting requirements. (6 AICP CM Credits/CEP Points)

     

    All participants will be expected to follow Washington Department of Ecology’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the training. Specifically, you will be asked to complete a COVID-19 health screening within 12 hours of arriving at the Lacey Community Center and wear a mask.


    Instructor:  Phillip Dionne is a research scientist with the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife Habitat Science Team. His current research interests are monitoring effects of shoreline modification on nearshore habitat, identifying and assessing the distribution and characteristics of forage fish spawning habitat, assessing new methods of detecting forage fish spawn, and monitoring the implementation of marine bulkhead HPA permits to help inform the development of a more effective permit system. Prior to joining the habitat program Phill’s research included work with the WDFW Fish Program using mark – recapture, and acoustic telemetry to assess abundance of Endangered Species Act (ESA) listed Green Sturgeon (Acipenser medirostris) in Washington and Oregon estuaries, and using estimates of larvae density to estimate spawning stock biomass of ESA listed Eulachon (Thaleichthys pacificus) returning to the Columbia River.

    This two-day class will provide wetland regulators and consultants with a practical tool for calculating if mitigation projects will adequately replace the functions and values lost to altered wetlands. The class is based on a method developed by the Department of Ecology called "Calculating Credits and Debits for Compensatory Mitigation in Wetlands of Eastern Washington" (Ecology Publication #11-06-15). This method is designed to provide guidance for both regulators and applicants during two stages of the mitigation process: 1) estimating the functions and values lost when a wetland is altered, and 2) estimating the gain in functions and values that result from the mitigation.

     

    The Credit Debit Method is based on the Washington State Wetland Rating System for Eastern Washington (Ecology publications #04-06-015 and #14-06-030). This workshop however does not provide training in the wetland rating system. Training in the wetland rating system is strongly suggested as a PRE-REQUISITE for this workshop.


    This course will include a required virtual session on Zoom on 11/16 (9:00 am - 12:30 pm). Participants will visit wetlands in Spokane with the instructor on 11/17 (9 am - 12:30 pm). The in-person session will be conducted in wetlands in Spokane, so dress appropriately. (6 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points).

    You will receive a copy of the “Eastern Washington Credit-Debit” manual.
