    This practical, hands-on virtual class is intended for local government personnel and consultants engaged in shoreline permitting activities.


    The class will take an in-depth look at the permit process and consider both procedural and substantive shoreline management issues. The Washington Administrative Code (WAC) and Revised Code of Washington (RCW) will be reviewed. A permitting exercise will be assigned between day 1 and day 2 in order to provide participants the opportunity to apply information they learned during the session on day 1. The sessions on day 2 will focus on permitting issues, examples, and case studies related to Shoreline Master Programs updated per WAC Guidelines.


    This class is appropriate for both beginners and more experienced planners. Participants will have the option to log on 15 minutes early on day 1 and 30 minutes early on day 2 for informal networking time with the instructors and participants. (6 CM AICP Credits/ CEP Points)

    Successful use of wetland identification and assessment tools includes an understanding of different wetland classification systems and how to apply them. This four-day class will introduce participants to four different classification systems used in wetland work, Cowardin, Hydrogeomorphic (HGM), U.S. National Vegetation Classification (USNVC), and Landscape, Land form, Water flow path, Waterbody type (LLWW). Participants will learn about the background and development of the classification systems, how to apply and interpret them at site and landscape levels, and general caveats associated with using different wetland classification systems.


    The Cowardin classification system is the framework for wetland polygons in the National Wetland Inventory (NWI) published by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Cowardin and HGM classification systems are used in the Washington Wetland Rating System (2014 Update) to characterize a wetland’s potential for hydrologic, water quality, and habitat functions and ecosystem services. Misclassification results in inaccurate assessments of wetland functions and levels of performance, which can affect mitigation requirements and buffers. In Washington, buffers are established based on an assessment of the wetland’s sensitivity and rarity and the functions it provides. Cowardin and HGM classification are integral components of those assessments.


    The USNVC is a hierarchical vegetation classification covering both upland and wetland ecosystems. The Washington Natural Heritage Program (WNHP) uses the finest level of the USNVC (plant associations) to inform conservation targets (e.g., Wetlands of High Conservation Value). WNHP recently modified the USNVC to more explicitly incorporate ecological relationships among plant associations. The resulting classification unit, subgroups, are specific to Washington’s wetlands. Subgroups are used as a basis for conducting Ecological Integrity Assessment (EIA) for wetlands and riparian areas in Washington and provide an alternative scale for mapping and conservation targets. The USNVC is increasingly being used as a vegetation mapping standard for many agencies and organizations such as the National Park Service, U.S GAP, and LANDFIRE.


    This course will include four virtual sessions. The virtual sessions will be hosted on Zoom on 12/7/2020 (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM), 12/8/2020 (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM), 12/9/2020 (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM), 12/10/2020 (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM). During the sessions the instructors will provide instruction on different types of wetland classification systems and display videos of different sites and ask the participants to classify the wetland based on the video. (12 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points).

    This 2-day virtual class will emphasize field character identification of the wetland species and associated upland buffer species found in the Puget lowland region of Washington (approximately 12 trees and 60 shrubs, including willows). The taxa examined will include common lowland, freshwater (and a few estuarine) species. Winter characteristics (buds, leaf scars, pith, and bark) will be covered. The class instruction will be oriented towards the needs of shoreline planners, delineators, OHWM determinations, and restoration.


    The course will be a mix of lectures and hands-on learning. Zoom will be used to host the class. Additionally, samples we be mailed to the participants in advance so that the participants can follow-along while at home.


    Participants will be expected to have a hand lens or simple dissecting microscope to examine the features on the samples.  Slides of the characteristics will be displayed virtually with instruction on what to look at.  A digital syllabus with drawings and pictures will be provided. (6 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points)
