EAC Network Conference: Healthy Yards and Streams

With 2 million acres of monoculture lawn in the Commonwealth, these spaces present an important opportunity for communities to be part of the solution to issues of watershed and stream health, water and air quality, and weather and climate stabilization. In this session, we’ll start with the big picture, learning about soils from a Penn State Extension Urban Forester, and zoom in to hear more about a few conservation landscape programs working to improve habitat, decrease stormwater problems, and offer low-cost climate resiliency. Leave inspired with ideas for local initiatives and policies which could be enacted in your community. Speakers: Vincent Cotrone, Penn State Department of Ecosystem Science; Jamie Anderson, Eastern Delaware County Stormwater Collaborative; Chris Bunn, Pennsylvania Resources Council.
