Green infrastructure lays the groundwork for sustainability and smart growth. Come and explore the many varieties of green infrastructure, from greenways and trails to green stormwater management, parks, farm and forest land, and wildlife habitats. Get an update on best practices and hear how cities and towns across the country have put them to work. You'll leave with the tools you need to cultivate green infrastructure in your community.
