Boreal Wetland Center
Wetlands remain an integral ecosystem under immense pressures from human development. Connecting people to the importance of local wetlands is vital for the protection of these areas.
Dr Ketcheson has partnered with Ducks Unlimited to establish a wetland hydrology monitoring network at the Wetland Centre near Grand Prairie AB. The Centre has recently launched a new branch of iWetland: a citizen science project that invites the public to participate in measuring water levels along an interpretive trail.
Future expansion of the monitoring network and citizen science program will continue to promote wetland science, appreciation, and protection.
