Low-impact development is an approach to land development and redevelopment that works with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible.
The following speakers will address green infrastructure projects in practice:
- Dr. Jason Evans, associate professor of environmental science and studies at Stetson University
- Paul Haydt, Florida coordinator for the East Coast Greenway Alliance
- Sandy Falcon, Lyonia Environmental Center manager
- Joe Sewards, urban and residential horticulture agent for the University of Florida/Volusia County Extension
After the presentations, speakers will take part in a panel Q-and-A.
The free workshop is coordinated by Green Volusia, a county initiative to provide information about environmentally responsible practices and encourage stewardship and conservation of natural resources.
