Identifying Vegetation for Wetland Delineation

OnDemand Webinar (91 minutes)

Gain an understanding of where the boundaries of the wetlands are located and the vegetative component of wetlands delineation.Wetlands are regulated by both Federal and State statutes and it is critical to understand where the boundaries of the wetlands are located. Many field investigators can be uncertain in the requirements of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in defining the vegetative component of wetlands delineation. This topic helps the individuals responsible for competing field delineations understand the basic approaches of the evaluation of the vegetative components as part of delineation as well as understand recent changes in technical approaches required by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This topic will provide valuable tips on evaluating the vegetative component of wetlands based on 30 years of wetlands experience.
