This full-day course is designed for consultants and others who work with projects that may involve eelgrass, and who need to have a basic understanding of eelgrass biology, distribution, mapping and delineation.
Course topics will include the following:
- Eelgrass biology
- Eelgrass functions and ecosystem services
- Species identification
- Distribution patterns
- Methods for mapping eelgrass
- Delineation of eelgrass bed boundaries using the new Corps eelgrass delineation guidance
The class will consist of a half-day classroom session in the morning, followed by a half-day of field exercises designed to familiarize participants with the new Corps of Engineers Eelgrass Delineation guidance. Class participants should expect to encounter wet conditions, soft sediments, with a fair amount of walking to and from the parking lot and tidal flats.
