Course testimonials:

  • Fabulous day full of practical, interesting information, relayed using teaching methods that made even technical concepts easy to understand. I absolutely loved it ... and will be doing more.
  • Great little excursion to the created wetlands at Ewingsdale! Really informative and great to see before heading into the classroom to learn about water.
  • The morning field trip was just so interesting... to see all the theoretical principals of water management, put into practice, on such a large scale
