    This 2-day class emphasizes field character identification of the most common freshwater, estuarine wetland, and associated upland buffer species found in the Puget lowland region of Washington State. It is oriented towards the needs of shoreline planners, delineators and those involved with Ordinary High Water Mark determinations, and restoration.


    The format is a lecture/laboratory setup. Each class begins with a short lecture covering the terminology and salient morphological characteristics needed for a taxonomic identification of the species of choice, field characteristics, some ecological aspects of the species’ common habitat, commonly associated species, distribution, potential use for restoration purposes, and any special ecological requirements. Lecture materials include drawings, slides, and dried plant material. Ample dried material will be available for everyone to practice their keying skills. (14 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points)

    When stakeholder engagement is not done thoughtfully, or breaks down altogether, projects can falter, budgets can implode, and the phone can ring off the hook - usually with an unhappy boss, elected official, or irate citizen on the other end!

    This interactive, hands-on training will transform your ability to engage and communicate with stakeholders – both internally and externally - in ways that are efficient, meaningful and will help your project or program succeed. Stakeholder engagement is a crucial aspect of natural resource management. However, many resource managers, planners, and other professionals have either a limited understanding of how to engage stakeholders successfully and/or limited time and budget to do it effectively. Almost everyone has a story of a project that went sideways because of poorly planned or executed stakeholder engagement strategies.

    In this class, you will learn about the increasingly important role that stakeholders play in ecosystem recovery efforts. You will also learn:

    • The building blocks of an effective stakeholder engagement plan and strategies for engaging stakeholders early and for sustained periods of time;
    • How to properly identify stakeholders and make distinctions between different “types” of stakeholders;
    • How to develop efficient, cost-effective strategies that are most effective for each stakeholder group, including whether to form citizens’ or technical advisory committees, and hold public meetings;
    • How to build trust by incorporating stakeholder input in project/program outcomes;
    • How to choose the most effective tools for the job and use it effectively - PowerPoint or glossy brochure? Traditional media or social media? Listserv or PSA? Workshop or public meeting?

    This class is built around lessons learned from 20+ years of stakeholder engagement in the Salish Sea region and U.S. west coast. (6 CM credits)


    Lunch is provided.


    Instructors: Hilary Wilkinson and Sarah Brace have designed and implemented stakeholder engagement processes related to Salish Sea ecosystem recovery efforts for close to two decades. In 2008, they co-founded Veda Environmental, a firm dedicated to connecting the dots between science, policy and people in order to protect and restore ecosystems. www.vedaenv.com  Sarah and Hilary design and deliver science communication and stakeholder engagement trainings to federal, state and industry representatives, most recently at the 2017 International Oil Spill Conference. Their audience also includes natural resource managers, scientists, and communications experts from public and private entities. Prior to founding Veda, Hilary and Sarah worked for local government (Hilary) and state (Hilary and Sarah) resource agencies leading public/stakeholder outreach efforts and science/technical advisory panels.

    This one-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 new method developed by the Department of Ecology called ""Calculating Credits and Debits for Compensatory Mitigation in Wetlands of Western Washington"" (Ecology Publication #10-06-11). 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 Western Washington (Ecology publication #04-06-025). 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.

     

    You will receive a copy of the “Credit-Debit” manual. The morning session will be held inside. The afternoon session will be conducted in local wetlands, so dress appropriately. (6 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points)

     

    Lunch is provided.

     

    Note:  This class will qualify you to use the 2014 Wetland Rating System if you have already taken the 2-day training in the older rating system in Western WA.

    This class reviews the geologic processes shaping Puget Sound beaches, such as erosion and sediment transport, and the influence of human activities on these processes. This year we’ve updated the class to include more emphasis on factors influencing the selection and design of erosion control measures.  We will look at a variety of softer techniques that are being used to reduce the impacts of conventional shoreline structures.  You’ll learn about recent guidance regarding the design and the review of soft shoreline and beach restoration projects. The class will include numerous examples that help you better understand the factors influencing a particular site and that highlight reasons for successful, and unsuccessful, shoreline projects. There will be a short field trip in the afternoon to a local beach.
