Earthquest mentorship

The time I spent working alongside Dave was valuable in increasing my knowledge on plant families, genera, and general surveying methods. I learned a lot about the environmental industry, whether it was consulting itself, or the process of restoring at-risk species, and it was very useful to interact with someone who as experience in these fields as well. It was quite helpful for guiding my goals, and for knowing the next steps in bettering my skills and becoming more qualified for a job in the environmental industry. It felt nice to re-immerse myself into field ecology and conducting botanical surveys, and I am happy to have taken the time throughout the summer to learn more about the plants in our backyards and see some of the rare plant populations that exist in southern Ontario.

Worth the 8 hour drive

I graduated in 2015 with a BS in Biology and a BS in Environmental Science with the hopes of getting into Environmental/Ecological Consulting or ecological Research but that hasn't happened. I have field experience from my undergraduate course work but that wasn't enough. This course not only provides valuable Bat Identification and survey information but it also helps navigate the policy and law side of consulting as well as provides unique field practice I've not found anywhere else.

Earthquest biological

Good training provided you don't have technical issues. I group did expect a little time on actual training we didn't count on having so many set backs. although we did get to develop our trailer park outline as to how we should structure are design in the near future Thanks Dave Mike

Gis cert course

Great teacher and excellent program. I learned more than expected and the hands on field trip justified the learning experience. My goal was to introduce myself to the GIS platform however it provided above and beyond training.

Great course, great instructor

I took this course 2 years ago. The content was good and the instructor was passionate, informative, and willing to answer questions. After the course, Dave offered a volunteer opportunity, which allowed me to gain further experience and build my resume. This course opened doors to jobs in my field as many require GIS including the permanent job I just obtained. Even though I have not had to use GIS since the course, I feel like the knowledge will come back easy and I still have my notes.
