The Conservation Fund hosted the first Green Infrastructure Community of Practice meeting at the Forest Service’s headquarters in Washington, DC, on November 30, 2007. This gathering was attended by over 50 government workers who wanted to continue conversation and enhance communication about new efforts.
To reach this goal, the group set a deadline of August 2020 for all interested parties – both federal, state, and local governments; non-profits, as well as academics – to join The Community of Practice. It also decided to request an invitation to exhibit at the US Botanic Gardens’ summer 2008 sustainability exhibit, which will feature an exhibit demonstrating.
On April 25, 2008, the US Department of Defense will host the organization’s second major event in Washington, D.C., from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
