Southeast Alaskans gather for Wetland Delineation Training

25 professionals from around Southeast Alaska, including Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Yakutat and Haines received two days of both class-room and field experience learning the basics of wetland delineation.

We would like to send out a big thank you to the Chikoot Indian Association, the Alaska District United States Army Corps of Engineers, and all 22 participants

that gathered in Haines on July 18th and 19th for the community-based wetland delineation training. Participants had access to the three staffers from both the Juneau and Anchorage offices of the the USACE, as well as an abundance of knowledge and experience brought to the training by participants. Based on the feedback we received on the training the two days were full of resourceful information and networking opportunities that provided participants with knowledge, skills, awarenesses and of course more question regarding the important topics of:

environmental laws effecting development in wetlands and waters of the United States

wetland delineation

wetland permitting process

wetland mitigation
