Shop Talk - Benefits of Incorporating Green Infrastructure into Parks and Recreation Facilities

In this edition of Shop Talk, Lori Yeich, Recreation & Conservation Manager from PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, will share her insights and experience with green infrastructure projects. Participants will: 1. Learn about important tips to writing successful grant proposals 2. Become more familiar with important state and federal clean water requirements 3. Have an opportunity to ask questions and learn from people involved with successful case studies

This session is designed to bring together municipal officials and staff, park officials and staff, watershed organizations, water authorities, and other interested stakeholders, to explore how incorporating Green Infrastructure (GI) into parks, trails and other public amenities creates a variety of user experiences, reduces flooding, improves water quality and sediment pollution. The session will provide case studies of municipally owned parks that utilized a variety of grant programs to leverage significant funding for large park rehabilitation and water quality improvement projects. In so doing, these local governments were able to address federal and state clean water requirements, diversify the recreational amenities in their parks to offer a variety of activities to enhance the visitor’s experiences and support their efforts towards becoming climate resilient.
