Wetlands, Watersheds, and Bioregional Identity

Participants will learn about the different kinds of wetland ecosystems and how to identify them in terms of their soils, hydrology, and ecology. Participants will also learn about the ecosystem services wetlands provide and their roles in a watershed. Participants will learn what a watershed is, how to delineate a watershed based on topography, the major watersheds in and surrounding the City of Edmonton, and some stream ecology. This part of the workshop will be mostly in a seminar-style format, but will involve a few short, group-based activities for participants to work through, to practice practically applying the theory that is being introduced. Lastly, participants will be introduced to the concept of bioregionalism and how watersheds can re-centre us within our local landscape. We will engage in a place-based meditative exercise to visualize ourselves within our local watershed and to create an ecological way of orienting ourselves within a landscape that is dominated by human grids and edifices.
