Nov. 12–13: Installation and Maintenance of Stormwater Treatment Best Management Practices.
This two-day workshop will demystify the most common components of stormwater treatment best management practices (BMPs). Learn from area experts who have experience designing, installing and maintaining the vegetative components of stormwater treatment BMPs.
The workshop is geared toward landscapers, subcontractors and general contractors currently working with stormwater treatment BMPs or those who would like to gain experience with these systems. Sessions will focus primarily on the most commonly installed practices in the metro area at this time — bioretention, rain gardens and native landscaping.
Nov. 19: Natural Resource Inventory
Be the first to experience new cutting-edge, high-resolution, land-cover data and explore the possibilities.
Local communities across the nation are including natural resource considerations into their planning processes. MARC has assembled the base data essential to integrated environmental planning. This workshop will provide the opportunity to see what new data is available, and how that information may be applied in a variety of contexts to achieve community goals like conserving natural areas, protecting air and water quality, and reducing urban heat islands.
