Professional presenters from Cows and Fish and the Alberta Low Impact Development Partnership explore how water quality, stormwater runoff, natural water storage and resiliency can be improved in developed areas, looking at low impact development, riparian restoration and management using a whole systems management approach. Geared for realtors, planning and municipal staff, green builders and others interested in sustainability related to stormwater, greening, housing and landscapes. (Note: content subject to change)
