Office of Continuing Professional Education
May 31 and June 1, 2012 Course Code: EH0201CD12 $515 before 5/17/12; $525 after; $495 multiple Since plants are the most obvious clues to wetland boundaries, you cannot delineate a wetland without experience identifying vegetation. In this two-day combination classroom and field course, botany specialists will teach you how to quickly and confidently identify plant species that are important in determining if an area meets the hydrophythic vegetation criterion for wetland delineation. FEATURED TOPICS: Introduction to plant identification ID characteristics Wetland plant indicator status Use of keys in the field Plant names and groups Basic botanical terminology Woody plant morphology Grass morphology Sedge/Rush morphology LEARN ABOUT: Meadows Restoration areas Emergent wetlands Riparian forest Mature forest Shrubs Field edges Upand-Wetland transition
[Veg ID] provided great depth of knowledge in plant identification.


June 13, 14, 15, and 16, 2012 Course Code: EH0401CC12 $1,030 before 5/30/12; $1,050 after; $990 multiple Learn the methods of the experts! This four-day course will introduce you to delineating wetlands using the Federal Interagency Wetland Delineation Manual, which is required for use in New Jersey. Techniques taught will also be applicable to individuals interested in using the 1987 Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual as well. Recognize the key indicators of wetlands (hydrophytic vegetation, hydric soils and wetland hydrology) while expert instructors Ralph Tiner and Peter Veneman show you how to use them in following proper delineation methods. Immediately apply criteria learned in the classroom by performing wetland determinations during team field exercises. VEGETATION: Analyze plant communities and identify dominant plant and indicators of hydrophytic vegetation SOILS: Identify sandy and non-sandy hydric soils based on the National List of hydric soil field indicators HYDROLOGY: Recognize direct and indirect indicators
I learned more from two days with Peter than a whole semester of college!

Additional Training
June 14, 2012 Course Code: EH0102CB12 $285 before 5/31/12; $295 after; $275 multiple When you delineate wetlands without the proper training or experience, you run the risk of regulatory and career repercussions. Wetlands training can be difficult to grasp if you start your education in an advanced course. Dont make the mistake of jumping into the Methodology for Delineating Wetlands course without first being exposed to the basic principles of wetland delineation in this course! This one-day combination classroom and field course, led by wetland expert, Ralph Tiner will teach you the basics of wetland identification and introduce you to the practice of wetland delineation. It will provide the essential background material needed for further study in the field of wetland delineation. Come review the skills you need to begin to identify freshwater wetlands and their boundaries!
Well worth the time and money! Informative and a good introduction.

May 3, 2012 Course Code: EH0302CA12 $285 before 4/22/12; $295 after; $275 multiple How important is learning hydrology? Who ever heard of a dry wetland! By understanding the hydrology, you will understand the distribution and circulation of water in a wetland. If you are planning to delineate, manage, or construct a wetland, you will need to be able to identify and assess the movement of water. This introductory one-day course with Dr. Claude Epstein (Professor of Environmental Studies at Richard Stockton College) combines classroom instruction with a hands-on field visit to provide you with a basic understanding of how wetlands are created and sustained. In the morning, you will review the connection between soil, water, and vegetation which creates a wetland. After lunch, gain practical experience using a soil auger to investigate hydrologic evidence for wetland delineation, water table depth and evaluation, and Hydrogeomorphic Models (HGMs) identification. FEATURED TOPICS: Saturated conditions Geochemical nature of wetlands Wetland soils and vegetation Wetland aeration zone Texture of muck moils Surface runoff accumulation Ponded and perched wetlands Unconfined ground water discharge Confined (Artesian) ground water discharge Hydrogeomorphic models (HGMs) Field evidence for HGM-type diagnosis
It (was) a real treat to hear from someone who has such a great breadth of both technical and historical knowledge.

Course Code: EH0101CA12

If performing an environmental assessment is part of your job, you must be familiar with Endangered and Threatened (E&T) species survey techniques, habitat assessments, and regulations. Whether your focus is land development or land preservation, this program will answer all your E&T questions and help you complete an accurate assessment. Dealing with E&T species requires both scientific and regulatory skills and knowledge. You must be able to recognize an E&T species and be able to identify potential habitats, even when the target species is not present. You must be familiar with the regulatory implications of an E&T species, and be able to write a clear, concise, and informative report. This popular course will introduce you to E&T species throughout New Jersey and the Landscape Project that maps their habitats while teaching you how to perform a survey for E&T species and prepare the appropriate reports. Recent changes to the states endangered species list and any new requirements resulting from these changes will be explained in detail.

FEATURED TOPICS: Wetland definitions and concepts Wetland hydrology indicators Wetland vegetation - hydrophytic plant indicators Wetland soils - soil colors, hydric soil indicators Wetland types - wetland classification, wetland maps Review of wetland plant characteristics
