Capturing the Rain: Green Infrastructure Options for HOA Common Areas

June 11, 2020 12:00 pm - 01:30 pm
This event is online

Join us for a webinar highlighting green infrastructure as a way to manage stormwater runoff in your neighborhood.

About this Event

Many local residents live in a homeowners association-controlled community. How these HOAs manage their landscapes can have a profound effect on the health of our local ecosystems, wildlife, streams and drinking water sources.

This short webinar will introduce attendees to green infrastructure concepts that can transform community spaces at HOAs, as well as options for similar spaces at parks, churches and schools.

What you will learn:

  • What is green infrastructure
  • Ways neighborhoods can create green and sustainable stormwater solutions
  • Where do landscaping tools like bioretention, rain gardens, bioswales, native plants and more fit into common spaces
  • How to get funding for stormwater solutions

Guest presenters Julie Bolthouse, Claire Catlett, David Wood, Ari Daniels, and David Hirschman will provide resources, tips, and guidance to HOAs and others interested in pursuing more innovative stormwater management strategies. They will also share information about local green infrastructure projects. Local representatives from Fauquier County, Fauquier Extension Office, John Marshall Soil and Water Conservation District will also be available to answer attendees questions.

Event Partners:

  • Center for Watershed Protection
  • Chesapeake Stormwater Network
  • Fauquier County
  • John Marshall Soil and Water Conservation District
