2017 Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society (PRPS) Annual Conference
March 27, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
LandStudies’ President, Kelly Gutshall will present as part of a panel session with Ruth Ann Hocker (Stormwater Program Manager with the City of Lancaster), Claire Maulhardt, P.L.A. (City Beautiful H20 Manager for Capital Region Water), and Lori Yeich (Recreation and Conservation Manager, PA DCNR). Their session is titled, “How Parks and Trails Can Address Stormwater Issues.” Those in attendance will learn from Kelly and several other presenters how townships in the state are using green infrastructure to turn their parks, trails, and waterways from things that are “nice to have” into multi-functional necessities for their community. Along the way they are lowering their park maintenance costs, expanding their recreational opportunities, obtaining grant funding, and mitigating stormwater permitting requirements. Real world examples will include the Cocalico Creek Watershed Restoration Planning project, the Jackson Township Golf Park, and the Warwick Township School District, among others.
