Green Infrastructure Workshop

Join Watershed Management Group (WMG) in Tucson for a half-day, participatory introduction to the world of green infrastructure on November 20 or December 4, 2010.

Green infrastructure (GI) addresses issues of polluted stormwater runoff, urban heat island effects, and community livability through strategies like water harvesting; sustainable stormwater management practices; removal or shading of impervious surfaces; urban forestry; bicycle and pedestrian improvements; and creation or improvement of greenways, parks, and wildlife corridors.

These free, public workshops will each include a presentation on neighborhood environmental and livability issues, a tour of local GI sites, and hands-on participation in neighborhood GI design and environmental problem-solving exercises. This event is open to anyone with a general interest in green infrastructure, and will also serve as an introduction for anyone interested in WMG’s upcoming Neighborhood Leaders program.

For more information on GI or WMG’s GI programs, visit the WMG’s Green Streets-Green Neighborhoods page.  Space is limited to 15 people per workshop; pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, please contact Tory Syracuse at 520-396-3266 or tsyracuse@watershedmg.org.  Visit the WMG events calendar for location details.

I am a relatively recent Armory Park resident (2/16) along with my wife, Donna and our little dog Lulu. In our 7+ decades, Donna and I lived over 30 years in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to Arizona. We have been Arizona residents for 16 years before coming here including 12 in Green Valley and four in west Tucson. We love the neighborhood for its history, walkability and interesting residents. Lulu insists on walking every day so you may see us following her around and picking up trash to keep our neighborhood presentable.
