Fantastic introduction to wetland vegetation and ecology.  If I can do the course and identify plants afterwards, anyone can! Greg Fletcher, Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority.

I found it useful to improve my general wetland understanding from which I can ask all the important questions of my consultants to check their reasoning in plans etc. 

Strengths of the course were the inspirational style, group sharing/learning and field trips. 

Excellent course thanks so much!
