PRPS: Parks and Green Infrastructure Workshop
April 2 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
LandStudies’ Mike LaSala will be a panelist at the Parks and Green Infrastructure Workshop as part of this year’s PA Recreation and Park Society (PRPS) Annual Conference. His topic will focus on Maintenance and Management of Green Infrastructure.
This workshop is designed to bring together elected officials, municipal staff, parks & recreation professionals, watershed organizations, and other stakeholders to explore how incorporating Green Infrastructure (GI) into parks, trails and other public amenities creates a variety of user experiences, reduces flooding and sediment pollution, and improves water quality.
Participants will also learn about regulatory drivers facing local governments, the challenges facing park systems, discuss case studies, and explore a range of pertinent issues including funding sources, best practices for constructing and incorporating GI into parks, and management and maintenance of GI features once they are in place.
Keynote Speaker Richard Dolesh, VP for Strategic Initiatives NRPA will start the day and attendees will have the opportunity to choose two out of three afternoon educational sessions:
- Leveraging Funding Sources for Park Rehabilitation
- Changing Landscapes of Parks
- Maintenance & Management of Green Infrastructure
