PeOPLE, place, participation: Strategies for healthy community waters

A Creek Week conversation with Andrew fox

Tuesday, March 20, 7 p.m.

Properly designed and built landscaping can be a most effective tool for managing stormwater, but only when the local community is involved. In this engaging talk, Andrew Fox of N.C. State University will show how combining the unique characteristics of people, place, and community participation can create innovative, responsible, and sustainable stormwater solutions that transform degraded and dysfunctional landscape spaces into celebrated
community places. 

“An engaging and inspirational speaker, able to present complex environmental concepts in an easily understandable manner. He will take you from raindrop to creek to river to sea better than anyone I have yet heard.”
