UW Milwaukee Field Station workshops offer an opportunity to study focused topics at college-level instruction under the guidance of experts. They offer one-day, two-day and week-long workshops, and housing and meals are available at the Station. Enrollment is limited to 20, the atmosphere is informal and instruction is individualized.

The Wetland Restoration course is a practical hands-on survey of wetland restoration practices and is intended to provide the participant with the tools to begin restoration investigation on their own land. We will discuss the principles of wetlands and wetland restoration, review a restored wetland site in the field, and get really dirty digging soil pits and looking for evidence of hydrological manipulation on a potential restoration site in the area. We will discuss the challenges and realities of restoration in the mix of degraded agricultural, industrial and urban landscapes that challenge design. Each participant will receive their own copy of the Wetland Restoration Handbook that Thompson co-authored.

Workshop Schedule:

Friday: 9 AM - 6 PM
Friday evening: discussion, individual study in the lab, or social
Saturday: 8 AM to 3 PM
