PRPS: Parks & Green Infrastructure Workshop April 2, Managing Water For Multiple Community Benefits
On April 2, the PA Recreation and Park Society will hold a Parks and Green Infrastructure Workshop - Managing Water For Multiple Community Benefits at the Penn Stater Conference Center in State College from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
This workshop is designed to bring together elected officials, municipal staff, parks & recreation professionals, watershed organizations, and other stakeholders to explore how incorporating green infrastructure into parks, trails and other public amenities creates a variety of user experiences, reduces flooding and sediment pollution, and improves water quality.
Participants will also learn about regulatory drivers facing local governments, the challenges facing park systems, discuss case studies, and explore a range of pertinent issues including funding sources, best practices for constructing and incorporating green infrastructure into parks, and management and maintenance of green infrastructure features once they are in place.
Keynote Speaker Richard Dolesh, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives NRPA will start the day and attendees will have the opportunity to choose two out of three afternoon educational sessions--
-- Leveraging Funding Sources for Park Rehabilitation
-- Changing Landscapes of Parks
-- Maintenance & Management of Green Infrastructure
