Spend the morning learning about four different methods of wetland evaluation: the NH Method, the new Army Corps Rapid Assessment Method, the Ecological Integrity Assessment Method, and the Federal Highway Method. You'll discuss the pros and cons and most appropriate use of each method and also learn how to use the NH Wetlands Mapper as a preliminary tool for evaluation and how this can accompany GIS work. During the afternoon, you'll head outdoors to a wetland in Manchester to practice using the wetland evaluation methods. You'll use the prepared wetland maps to assist your field assessments. Be sure to bring a notepad, clipboard, pencil, personal drinking water, and bug spray. It would also be helpful if you can bring a camera and binoculars. Wear clothing suitable for outdoors.
