Street to Stream Workshop
May 30, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Free
The Alberta Riparian Habitat Management Society (Cows and Fish) and the Alberta Low Impact Development Partnership Society (ALIDP) invite you to attend our From Street to Stream Workshop.
Paving paradise costs us all more than the price of concrete and asphalt.
Roofs and roads change the character of water, and our waterways pay. And you pay too – in the cost to treat water, in flooding and flood repair, in erosion, in pollution, in recreational opportunities, and in the health of the landscape overall.
We all have a role to play in mitigating these impacts in our homes, yards, neighborhoods and communities.
Please join us in a half day workshop to explore:
– Suitability of tools and practices for Alberta
– Visual assessment criteria
– Costs, benefits, pros, cons, market availability
– Local examples
This collaborative project will weave together the story of cause-and-effect between land development and real-estate features and actions at the lot and neighborhood level through to outcomes, impacts, and remedial actions for our streams and riparian areas—taking you From Street to Stream.
