Eight WAFI team members recently completed the FRI/ELC Ground Validation Training Course May 12-15 2014. It was an informative and interactive training session which covered the OMNR procedures for eFRI Calibration Plot set up. Topics included bedrock and surficial geology, soils, OMNR health and safety policies, Ecological Land Classification concepts and methods. There was an in-class component but the bulk of the training course took place in the field. A test was given at the end of the session and all WAFI personnel passed with flying colours! We have a great crew and look forward to a productive postive field season.
