Grey to Green Conference – Washington D.C.
October 29 - October 30
Chesapeake Bay has provided an important focal point for many of the innovative policies and programs that have been implemented to accelerate the adoption of green infrastructure in the D.C.-Baltimore metropolitan region. The Chesapeake Bay Watershed, home to more than 18 million people, is distinctly susceptible to the impacts of climate change—particularly to increasing flooding and more intense rainstorms. Although much as been accomplished, few localities have considered how to site and utilize green infrastructure practices more strategically for stormwater management in a changing climate. Grey to Green: Washington D.C. Conference will shine a spotlight on the best practices in policy, design, financing, research and maintenance from across the region and beyond. By coming together to network and share information, Grey to Green will help stimulate more rapid progress in the utilization of green infrastructure across the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
