WEBINAR: City Habitats: City Scale Green Infrastucture at Work, October 5th, 9:30-10:00 am 

As the iconic Pacific Northwest rain hits the ground and washes over rooftops, parking lots, roadways and other impervious surfaces in urban areas, it picks up pollutants and rushes to creeks, lakes and other water bodies. Polluted stormwater runoff from urban areas is the largest source of pollution to Washington State’s Puget Sound. This webinar will highlight stories from City Habitats, a regional collaborative formed to use nature to help address the challenges of water and air quality while supporting thriving communities. Representatives from Stewardship Partners, The Nature Conservancy and Washington Environmental Council will discuss their efforts to use the inherent filtering qualities of natural infrastructure to keep the Puget Sound healthy for generations to come. Specific topics include cross-sector coalition building, advancing policy and science, and case studies on both community-driven neighborhood projects and larger scale green infrastructure projects. While the session has a Puget Sound flavor, the strategies are broadly applicable.
