Wetland Design is a graduate-level, online class that shows how to design and build naturally appearing and functioning wetlands. There are no classroom sessions. The detailed modules explain the values of wetlands, how wetlands were drained, factors affecting site selection for restoration, techniques for construction, and how nonfunctioning wetlands may be repaired. The class focuses on teaching practical, low cost, and highly effective practices for restoring wetlands that will require little, if any maintenance. Specific examples from across North America show how wetlands may be built to improve habitat for rare animals and plants, provide water for livestock, manage stormwater, recharge groundwater, and control flooding.
