With over thirty-five years of experience in wetland construction and restoration, your instructor and his colleagues have organized the process of developing a successful wetland construction plan into five basic steps. Soil scientist and wetland construction expert, Mallory Gilbert, describes and explains critical components of this incremental approach through lecture, case studies, and site visits during this three-day course. The five steps include: planning your project, selecting your construction model, preparing your water budget and hydrograph, determining proper vegetation, and manipulating soil.
