Event description
This course will focus on understanding water use on site, its natural cycle as well as the larger context and impact of water locally.

About this Event

** “Sites and Sustainable Water” will now be hosted virtually in response to the increasing spread of the novel coronavirus/COVID-19. Registered attendees will receive their Zoom meeting link a few days before April 15th. **

We realize many people have been financially impacted by COVID-19, which is why we changed the price of our webinar: you can now pay what you want! Our webinars are typically $35, but you can pay however much you want (Eventbrite's minimum payment is $1.00).

This course will focus on understanding water use on site, its natural cycle as well as the larger context and impact of water locally. In addition, it will cover the importance of soil and plant management, with strategies that are specific to the project site and location.

Techniques that will be discussed will include: reducing water use for landscape irrigation, low impact development techniques, choosing native and drought tolerant plans, providing pollinator and bird habitat, restoring native plant communities, managing invasive plants, and creating soil management and pest management plans.

Both the LEED rating system and SITES rating system will be used for this course.
