Know Something about Green Infrastructure?

Great! Because we’re looking for someone just like you to present at the

13th Annual Parks and Greenspace Conference

Pipes to Parks: Creating Greenspace with Rainwater

When: March 31, 2014

Where: The Atlanta Botanical Garden

What’s this all about?

Green Infrastructure: Sustainable and natural management techniques that harvest, treat and utilize rain 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 ground-breaking projects that leverage rainwater runoff and green infrastructure techniques to build innovative parks and greenspaces. In addition to improving water quality, these new greenspaces can catalyze redevelopment, mitigate storm water flooding, provide off-road transportation corridors, transform neighborhoods, and often provide community amenities where none existed previously.

Who: Currently, we’re calling for proposals for keynotes, breakout sessions, and tours! Interested? Fantastic. Also, general registration will open in November, 2013.

Check out all the info for proposal submissions HERE.

Proposal deadlines (9/12 for keynote and tour proposals; 11/1 for breakout session speaker proposals) are FIRM – please submit all the required materials on time to be considered!

Spread the good word!
