Many Southwestern US states and Northwestern Mexican states are looking for ways to rehydrate their landscapes, manage cycles of drought and flood, combat the urban heat island effect and create green, welcoming urban areas for their citizens. Watershed Management Group has been working in urban areas on both sides of the border to assist with this task and has developed a manual of best practices in the region. You can now download it for free in both English and Spanish.


Watershed Management Group created this manual for neighborhood residents and professionals alike. The manual provides information on designing and installing green infrastructure practices that clean air and stormwater, reduce flooding, calm traffic, and cool and beautify neighborhoods through the use of stormwater harvesting and native vegetation. To download the guide, click here (3.8 MB pdf).

En colaboración con la ciudad de La Paz, Baja California Sur, México estamos orgullosos de ofrecer en español el manual de Infraestructura Verde para Comunidades del Desierto Sonorense! Esta nueva versión incluye información e imágenes específicas para Baja California Sur. Bajarlo aquí (7 MB pdf).
