About the Event

The workshop is virtual this year with the exception of a site assessment which will take place at Hood Park in Derry, NH on March 30.

In-person Site Assessment participants will need to follow standard COVID-19 precautions and complete a short health screening on the day of the session. The screening questions are available here for preview. Day 1 workshop presentations end at 11:00 am to allow one hour of driving time for the 12:00 pm Site Assessment. If your travel time is greater than one hour, please select the Site Assessment that begins at 1:10 pm.

Participants will learn how to use ecological concepts and landscape features such as rain gardens, vegetative buffers, and other green infrastructure to protect lakes, rivers, streams and bays. Instructors are from universities, university centers, university extension, environmental agencies, municipalities, and private enterprise. Thanks to all of our sponsors!
