Participants will learn about the impacts of stormwater runoff and design a green infrastructure plan for their property during this two-day workshop. Green infrastructure and low impact development are management practices that naturally filter and store runoff, reducing the amount of waste entering local waterways.
Experts in stormwater engineering and sustainable land use will teach participants how to identify stormwater pollutants, calculate runoff and implement low impact development practices that improve water quality. Using information provided during presentations and hands-on activities, participants will design a rain garden for their property that will involve selecting native vegetation and creating a site-specific maintenance plan.

The Coastal Stewards program is a series of environmental education workshops targeted to adults living on or visiting the Georgia coast. The goal of the program is to engage adults in activities designed to improve their knowledge of coastal ecosystems, enhance understanding of current issues impacting coastal communities, and inspire stewardship of natural resources. Each workshop contains a mixture of lecture, lab and field activities using scientific and recreational equipment.
