Training: Strategic Conservation Planning Using a Green Infrastructure Approach


Southaven, Mississippi

Event Date:

March 11, 2009 – March 13, 2009


The “Strategically Planning for Ecological Restoration Using a Green Infrastructure Methodology” course is designed to teach students about the application of a green infrastructure approach to development. This method may be used to link environmental, social, and economic well-being in both urban, suburban, and rural areas. It’s possible that this work can lead.

Participants will also understand how green infrastructure planning might be used to build consensus among different viewpoints and inform land use decisions. This one-of-a-kind session offers a comprehensive approach to selecting conservation possibilities while still ensuring that development is achievable.

Individuals from a variety of disciplines, including community and consulting engineers, city and county planners, consulting land planners, elected and appointed officials, land developers, Realtors, and others working at local, regional, state, and federal levels will attend the seminar.

The conference is sponsored by the A.W. Bouchillon Institute for Community Planning, the Conservation Fund, the US Forest Service, and the North Central Resource Conservation and Development Council.
