Take a walk (and dive 🤿) with Amanda Montgomery as she gives us a glimpse into what a day in the life of an Environmental Scientist looks like at WGI.
Event Recap: SFAEP Wetland Delineation Workshop
Earlier this month, WGI Environmental Scientists, Amanda Montgomery and Christa Cherry participated in a two-day South Florida Association of Environmental Professionals (SFAEP) wetland delineation workshop. The two-day workshop focused on wetland delineation training provided by regulatory staff from the South Florida Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Each day included a morning classroom session followed by an afternoon hands-on field session in Miami-Dade County. Agenda topics covered during the two-day workshop included vegetation tests, hydric soil indicators, hydrologic indicators, documentation, and more.
These types of professional development events are a great opportunity for associates on our environmental team to expand and streamline their professional qualifications and maintain close professional working relationships with the environmental permitting regulatory agencies (SFWMD and USACE).
“Amanda is my name, and playing in the muck is my game“ – Amanda Montgomery, Professional Wetland Scientist.

WGI’s Environmental Team conducted a due-diligence assessment for a communication complex that was over 50 years old. During their assessment, they discovered the site was being utilized as a habitat for a state-threatened listed species of owl, the Florida burrowing owl!
