This workshop is designed to bring together elected officials, municipal staff, parks & recreation
professionals, watershed organizations, and other stakeholders to explore how incorporating Green
Infrastructure (GI) into parks, trails and other public amenities creates a variety of user experiences,
reduces flooding and sediment pollution, and improves water quality.
Participants will also learn about regulatory drivers facing local governments, the challenges facing
park systems, discuss case studies, and explore a range of pertinent issues including funding sources,
best practices for constructing and incorporating GI into parks, and management and maintenance of GI
features once they are in place.
Keynote Speaker Richard Dolesh, VP for Strategic Initiatives NRPA will start the day and attendees
will have the opportunity to choose two out of three afternoon educational sessions:
* Leveraging Funding Sources for Park Rehabilitation
* Changing Landscapes of Parks
* Maintenance & Management of Green Infrastructure
