From rain gardens in the right-of-way and forested public parks to stream and wetland improvements, restoration projects in the urban environment exist in the public view. There are more eyes on the project, and more public scrutiny on aesthetics and maintenance.
This symposium will look at the intent and details of vegetation regulations from regional agencies and jurisdictions, plant selection guidelines, installation and maintenance standards and practices, and the critical specifications and design approaches to foster successful implementation and longevity.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to connect with other professionals (and professions) involved in the different components of large-scale urban restoration and green infrastructure projects. Learn how to incorporate perspectives from each project stage to avoid common pitfalls and ensure that planting projects reach the intended goals.
Speakers will share perspectives with broad applicability to a variety of restoration project types. A resource list will be developed to guide attendees to information about specific types of projects and regulations/permitting for local jurisdictions.
