The cost of designing, installing and maintaining larger scale green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) projects can often be daunting for park agencies and other public lands managers.  This special free webinar of the Great Urban Parks Campaign sponsored by NRPA and APA will give you the information you need to know on how you can easily and simply design, install and maintain low-cost small-scale green infrastructure stormwater projects in parks and public spaces.

Participants will hear from experts in green infrastructure stormwater management how to plan, design, construct, maintain and inspect simple, low-tech green stormwater management installations.  This webinar will give public lands managers, water utility staff and park administrators the confidence to tackle a variety of smaller scale green infrastructure projects, even if funding is limited.  Presenters will share how they designed their projects, engaged their local community, involved youth and young adults in construction and maintenance, and successfully completed green stormwater management projects that had measurable benefits.

Whether you are just beginning to think about installing green infrastructure stormwater management or you are already well versed in green infrastructure practices, you won’t want to miss the excellent design ideas, practical experience, and common-sense knowledge of the presenters.  Join us for this interesting and valuable free webinar.  The webinar is free, but pre-registration is required.
