About this Event

The Green Infrastructure (GI) Champions program is excited to announce a Green Infrastructure Champions knowledge transfer workshop in North Chili, New York. The workshop will highlight how GI strategies support healthy, resilient watersheds for both rural and urban communities. Attendees will learn from local experts as they share their lessons learned about planning, design, funding, construction, monitoring, and maintenance of green infrastructure. Local experts will share their lessons learned about planning, design, funding, construction, monitoring, and maintenance of green infrastructure. The workshop will also include a field trip to GI demonstration sites to see first-hand how GI can support different community goals. Attendees will also learn about various funding sources that support GI work.

The workshop is open to planners, community and municipal representatives, consultants, and engineers interested in adopting GI in their communities. No prior expertise in GI is required. This workshop may fulfill New York State law requiring training for local planning officials. Check with your local governing body. A Certificate of Participation can be provided if requested.

The GI Champions program is run by the Great Lakes Commission with generous support by the Erb Family Foundation. GI Champions seeks to catalyze adoption of GI practices and policies by providing small to mid-sized municipalities with resources they frequently lack: capacity and expertise. The Champions program also leads a mini-grant program and mentoring network that connect emerging champions to pioneer champions with expertise in GI. You can find more information on the GI Champions mini-grant and mentoring network on our website: https://www.glc.org/work/champions.

The workshop is free to attend, and complimentary continental breakfast, lunch, and field trip transportation will be provided to attendees. Space is limited for this event so reserve your seat early!
