Flooding, stormwater management, air quality, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and community health are among the critical metropolitan issues that Green Infrastructure can help address. Join the Western Center for Metropolitan Extension and Research’s Green Infrastructure Summit on Feb 21 & 22 at the Embassy Suites in Beaverton, OR to create collaborative problem-solving networks, identify research and education priorities, and share existing resources with University researchers, government and agency representatives, and Extension professionals from across the region. Green infrastructure, includes vegetation, soils, and other elements and practices that restore some of the natural processes required to manage water and create healthier urban environments (EPA. October, 2017. https://www.epa.gov/green-infrastructure). Green Infrastructure elements may be integrated in communities in single, small-scale applications or networks of practices spanning entire watersheds. Examples include land conservation, urban tree canopy, green roofs, green parking, green streets and alleys, permeable pavements, bioswales, planter boxes, rain gardens, rainwater harvesting and downspout disconnection.
