2017 FRF Range Health Assessment Training – September 14 2017

Designed for students, agrologists, ecologists, land owners, regulators, planners, reclamation practitioners and anyone interested in learning more about native grassland ecosystems.

 Native Grasslands are healthy when production, soil stability, capture and release of water, nutrient cycling and functional diversity of native plants are performing well. Measuring the status of these key functions is the foundation of monitoring rangeland health. 

 This course offers field-based training on common plant identification, use of soils and landscape mapping (AGRASID and GVI) in relation to Alberta’s Range Plant Community Guides and Range Health Assessment Manuals. Designed to classify and assess grassland plant communities, these tools are critical for pre‐site assessments, reclamation design and restoration of native grassland.

An early-bird registration rate of $185.00 per person is available to those who register before August 11, 2017. The fee for those who register after the 11th is $225.00 per person.

Online registration and payment are now closed, as we have reached capacity for this year’s session. If you would like to be placed on our waiting list should additional places become available, or for more information, please contact Donna Watt at corpirate@shaw.ca.
