Green Infrastructure & LID Technical Training - Concepts and Best Practices

The focus of this technical training will be on teaching concepts and best practices associated with urban retrofits and redevelopment. Learning will be achieved through a blend of classroom lectures, site assessments, design exercises, and hands-on activities. This training draws on WMG's experience working with neighborhoods and local governments to install green infrastructure and develop municipal guidelines and policy in the Southwest. While WMG's focus is on the Southwest the intent is for the knowledge gained in this training to be transferable to other regions.

Thanks Jen for posting!

Come learn how to turn a hostile urban landscape into endless opportunities for planting stormwater to achieve myriad benefits. The course will focus around smaller sub-watersheds in a lower income area experiencing severe flooding and heat island effects. You will learn how to assess and design potential solutions to turn this around!
