Description:

This conference will provide an introduction to green infrastructure (GI) concepts, presentations about demonstration project in Newburgh and elsewhere in the region, and discussion about resources and next steps. In addition to managing stormwater and protecting water quality, GI concepts and practices offer a wide range of other community benefits including improved streetscape environments; increased energy efficiency; improved air quality; enhanced recreation and walking opportunities; and increased property values. This event will include discussion of benefits of green infrastructure for public health. Continuing education hours for landscape architects licensed in New York State have been applied for, and we expect it will qualify for at least 3-4 CE hours. Speakers include Nette Compton, ASLA, N.Y. City Department of Parks; Eric Rothstein, e Design Dynamics; and many others, featuring case studies of completed and planned projects. This event is located at the SUNY-Orange Kaplan Hall in Newburgh, N.Y., and a green roof that's open to the public as a courtyard next to the conference room will be available for self-guided tours.
