Washington, DC (April 26, 2006)- Green Infrastructure is a strategic approach to integrating natural areas into plans for growth that focus on maintaining ecosystem functions. This minimizes the need for “grey infrastructure” such as storm drains, as well as providing open space amenities. Ed McMahon, Senior Resident Fellow, Urban Land Institute and author of Green Infrastructure: Linking Landscapes and Communities, is the speaker for this event.
