The Wetland Advisory and Training Centre in Lelystad, The Netherlands -- host of the famously successful annual International Courses on Wetland Management (Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management: Institute for Inland Water Management and Waste Water Treatment, RIZA) -- announces the first International Course on Wetland Restoration, set for 14 June-11 July 2000 in Lelystad. The course will focus on degraded freshwater water systems (marshes, bogs, rivers and lakes) and ways to approach their restoration. The deadline for applications is 1 February 2000, so it will soon be time to get off the duff. WATC courses are solidly based upon Ramsar principles and guidelines, and the Ramsar Secretary General chairs the Board in an advisory capacity. The attractive course brochure is available from watc@riza.rws.minvenw.nl.
