Course Overview

Alberta’s new Wetland Policy has introduced a new method for rapidly evaluating the important natural functions of wetlands.

This complex method uses regional and local data, as well as historical losses of wetlands to help inform different wetland management strategies on provincial and sub-provincial levels.

ABWRET tools created to support the new Wetland Policy include:

  • Alberta Merged Wetland Inventory
  • ABWRET - Estimator
  • ABWRET - A excel spreadsheet
  • Other related tools
