Learn about natural techniques for cleansing and conserving stormwater for humans and wildlife, at any scale–backyard to campus to region. Our bayous and bays are greatly impacted by the quality of the stormwater flowing into them, and now is a great time to start improving it with practices we can implement at home, at school, or beyond.
The workshop is open to everyone, with particular focus on educators. TCWP demonstrates many years of partnering with schools and educators to produce innovative sites with a positive impact on water quality and wildlife.
Join us on Saturday, March 4, in a beautiful setting–the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory‘s new LEED-certified building in Lake Jackson, TX.

- Charriss York, Green Stormwater Infrastructure Program Specialist: Collecting and cleansing stormwater runoff at home, the neighborhood, and schools
