BENTHIC SURVEYS - IN THE FIELD

Benthic Surveys-in the Field will be a full day, consisting of theoretical background on benthic macroinvertebrate surveys, followed by hands-on practice with sampling methods as per industry standards such as OBBN and OSAP.

After sampling, participants will then process the samples and using Dichotomous Keys, identify specimens collected.

WEDNESDAY
AUGUST 25th
9AM-4PM

VEGETATION SURVEYS - IN THE FIELD

Vegetation Surveys-in the Field will also be a full day, consisting of reviewing the tools to identify plants and ecosites common throughout Northeastern Ontario as well as an overview of the Ecological Land Classification (ELC) system.

In the field, participants will be introduced to plant anatomy using plants in the Timmins area and classify an ecosite using the ELC system.

ELECTROFISHING ASSISTANT WORKSHOP

The Electrofishing Assistant Workshop will prepare participants to take part in backpack electrofishing field surveys as a netter or assistant. The course will cover the theory and safety of using a backpack electrofishing unit, and an overview of fish identification.

In the field, participants will practice in-water communication, netting skills, and will have a chance for hands-on fish identification with live specimens.
