Join municipal colleagues in the region to explore ways of creating more sustainable, connected, and natural communities for the benefit of people, birds, and other wildlife. Includes breakfast, lunch and optional pre-workshop bird walk.
This solutions-oriented Workshop includes Green Infrastructure, Policy, and Community Outreach tracks that will highlight tools and resources designed for municipal use, and will provide a platform to share insights on managing our local resources in ways that support system-wide sustainable landscapes that we all need.
County, Municipal, and Environmental Advisory Council presenters will describe plans, ordinances, projects and other initiatives implemented in their communities. Interactive sessions will enable attendees to ask questions, describe their own sustainability, community greening, and stormwater management programs, and think through how they can work collaboratively to continue to advance those efforts.
Attendees will also be eligible to apply for a mini grant of up to $1,500 to support new project ideas that come out of the Workshop or existing projects related to Workshop themes.
