Presented by the Center for Research in Water Resources & the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, these FREE workshops will offer an in-depth introduction to the economic benefits, ecological goals, planning techniques, design principles, analytical methodologies, and implementation strategies for monitoring results of the innovative LID technology for stormwater management.
