Stormwater Management Overview
Thursday, 09/28/2017 (09:00 AM - 03:30 PM)

Review the present and future standards with respect to low-impact development and green infrastructure stormwater management. UNH Stormwater Center (UNHSC) research addresses the overall performance and effectiveness of a variety of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to control water quantity and treat water quality. To date, the UNHSC has researched over 36 different BMPs ranging from conventional ponds to manufactured subsurface filters to broad array of low-impact development (or green infrastructure) practices. Testing results and technology demonstrations from the UNHSC field research facility contribute to the planning, design, and implementation of stormwater management strategies. Topics covered include water quantity control (peak flow reduction, system lag time and potential for infiltration), water quality treatment effectiveness (sediment, nutrients, metals, hydrocarbons, and/or microorganisms), as well as brief overviews of emergent topics such as system maintenance, thermal buffering, and cold climate related issues. Participants will be able to use information to understand state and federal guidelines and make design recommendations to maximize project success.

 

This workshop is a requirement for the Stormwater Management Certificate. You do not need to be enrolled in the certificate program to take this course.

Foundations of Permaculture
Tuesday, 01/02/2018 (All day)

Foundations of Permaculture

 

New Online Workshop | Self-Paced | Jan 2 - Feb 9, 2018 | Instructor: Lauren Chase-Rowell

 

Permaculture refers to the philosophy and development of a sustainable ecosystem that is self-sufficient and meets the needs of its inhabitants, from food and shelter to fuel and entertainment--thereby reducing impact on the environment. Permaculture design and principles are derived from the laws of nature at work and challenge human beings to live sustainably in innovative and creative ways. This online course is the first of three online courses that will culminate in permaculture certification. It will give you a foundational understanding of permaculture and offers a basic overview for developing a resilient future for the self, home and community “starting where you are.” A synopsis of permaculture ethics, principles, and key concepts will provide a base for developing one’s own permaculture solutions while working with nature on a variety of sites and conditions. One week prior to the course, during the Intro Week, you will establish a UNH IT account required to access the Canvas online teaching system and also receive detailed information from the instructor. Register early to ensure your IT account can be set up in a timely manner! 

 

This is part of the Permaculture Design Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.
