Alberta Wetland Field Guide Now Available

Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is pleased to announce the official release of the Alberta Wetland Classification System Field Guide. Digital and hardcopies of the guide are now available.

This project would not have been possible without the generous support of Alberta Innovates Water Innovation Program, Alberta North American Waterfowl Management Plan Partnership and Prairie Habitat Joint Venture.  We would also like to thank all our collaborators, photo contributors and reviewers as we celebrate the release of this valuable wetland resource.

Download your field guide here or, purchase a hardcopy for $32 (shipping included) here. Please note that the field guide was updated on July 12th and we recommend anyone who downloaded it prior to this date re-download the final version.

If you have already attended a training session, we thank you for your time. We will be offering further free wetland classification training events this fall, with the possibility of a field training event. In order to determine the format and schedule for these events, we ask anyone interested to please participate in this 3 minute survey.
