Event description

Description


Join us for an introduction to Green Infrastructure Techniques. Green Infrastructure is the use of vegetation, soils, and other elements and practices to restore some of the natural processes required to manage water and create healthier urban environments. We will focus on rain gardens, rain barrels, swales as well as Best Managment Practices for property owners.

Those in Santa Rosa County who have expierenced flooding on their property are encouraged to attend to learn about techniques to help manage stormwater in their landscapes. Presentations will provide information on our local waterbodies and what impacts these coastal areas and green infrastructure techniques. We will then travel to sites in Santa Rosa and Escambia counties to observe examples of green infrastructure projects, including some private property projects.

SRC Stormwater Solutions Program will offer incentives to property owners who attend this program. Participation in this workshop is required to qualify for up to $200 reimbursement incentive to install a green infrastructure project on your property. Photos and proof of expenditures will be required for reimbursement.
