Wetland Design is a graduate level, online class that will show you how to design and build naturally appearing and functioning wetlands. The detailed units explain the values of wetlands, how wetlands were drained, factors affecting site selection for restoration, techniques for construction, and how nonfunctioning wetlands can be repaired.
Building dams is the old-fashioned way of constructing wetlands and ponds. Tom Biebighauser has developed highly effective and low-cost techniques for restoring wetlands without the use of dams, ditches, canals, pipes, and pumps. Wetlands built without dams appear and function like natural wetlands, requiring little if any maintenance.
Join Tom Biebighauser, Wildlife Biologist and Wetland Ecologist to learn about wetland restoration techniques. Various techniques will be explored to restore wetlands, and discuss how to do so with minimal maintenance (without the use of dams, weirs, or pumps).
