What: The 13th Annual Parks and Greenspace Conference, “Pipes to Parks: Creating Greenspaces with Rainwater”
When: Monday, March 31st 2014 – all day
Where: Atlanta Botanical Garden
Green Infrastructure: Sustainable and natural management techniques that harvest, treat and utilize rainwater runoff in greenspaces such as parks, bio-swales, constructed wetlands and rooftop gardens, diverting water away from and reducing a need for traditional “gray” infrastructure (i.e., sewers and drainage pipes).
All over the country, communities and municipalities are implementing projects that leverage green infrastructure techniques to build innovative parks and greenspaces.
“Pipes to Parks” will highlight existing opportunities for green infrastructure development, inspire cooperation from diverse partners, and influence decision-makers to creatively solve rainwater runoff concerns while producing wonderful parks!
