April 18, 2024 | Session 1 | Green Infrastructure 101

Description: Green Infrastructure (GI) is critical to addressing urgent and interrelated water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure challenges. GI has not, however, been widely adapted in U.S. municipalities — particularly in small, rural, and tribal communities — due to political barriers, misconceptions, and lack of knowledge or resources to successfully implement GI. In this introductory webinar, we will kick off our 10-part series with an overview of basic GI concepts, terminology, and funding sources; as well as challenges and opportunities facing communities and practitioners in the field of GI.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a basic understanding of what Green Infrastructure is and what it does for water quality and public health; particularly in rural, small, and tribal communities.
  • Understand what the Green Infrastructure Webinar Series can offer: resources, deep dives into topics concerning GI and its implementation, a forum for cross-disciplinary discussion and partnerships.
  • Identify some basic challenges and opportunities currently facing practitioners in the implementation of GI.

Guest Speakers: Sarah Hurteau, Principal Ecologist, Integrated Biological Solutions & Co-Founder, Arid LID Coalition; and Amy Bell, PLA, ASLA, Principal Landscape Architect, Groundwork Studio

Certificate: This webinar has NOT been submitted for continuing education credit approval. We can provide a certificate of attendance to eligible attendees but cannot guarantee it will meet your PDH or CEU requirements.

Who Should Attend:

We invite rural, small, and tribal wastewater personnel, as well as planners, landscape architects, architects, consultants, engineers, designers, managers and board members, elected officials, policy experts, citizens, and community groups to join us for this series. We hope to build a community of systems, municipalities, and individuals interested in participating in a wide-ranging conversation about green infrastructure.
