Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service invites you to attend the Urban Green Infrastructure Summit, Feb. 21-22 in Tigard, Oregon.

Today's metropolitan areas face a myriad of complex infrastructure, management and social challenges.  To help successfully tackle these issues, OSU Extension Service presents the Urban Green Infrastructure Summit.

 

A few of the issues to be discussed include:

  • Landscape scale challenges and management - land use planning, floods and floodplain management, climate resiliency, riparian and wetland management, open spaces.

  • Traditional GI, LID practices - runoff reduction, water quality treatment practices, urban trees and forest

  • Non-traditional issues - social justice and equity, public health, air quality and heat islands, contaminants of emerging concern, economics, regulations, and incentives, outreach efforts.
