    "Transitioning from Grey to Green Infrastructure"


    Location: The Red Blazer, 72 Manchester St., Concord, NH


    The Granite State Landscape Architects (GSLA) would like to invite our members and associated professionals to join us on November 8th @ 5 PM for our last dinner reception of the year. Registration for the event is available at the link below:


    This lively presentation by Steve Whitman will feature the ongoing paradigm shift from traditional grey infrastructure to more innovative and ecological green infrastructure systems. Given the spectrum of green infrastructure definitions and potential solutions, it is often confusing to municipalities and developers alike.  Steve will present the concept of Ecosystem Services as a tool for making sense of it all! Please join us for a conversation about how landscape architects and allied professionals can assist in this shift and generate ecologically robust and resilient systems that support the built environment
