Brown Bag Lunch: A Watershed Approach to California Landscapes

Monday, September 21, 2015

 

On Thursday, September 17, The  Association of Professional Landscape Designers, California Chapter hosted a Brown Bag Lunch on the topic of the watershed approach at  the Cal EPA building in Sacramento. 

The watershed approach is a natural approach to landscape design, construction, and maintenance that transcends water use efficiency to address related benefits such as rainwater capture; reduction of pollution, energy and cost savings; and human and wildlife habitat improvements. 

During the lunch, approximately 50 attendees from varied state agencies, the APLD California Chapter, and other organizations participated in watching the Soil Story film and listening to informative talks on the watershed approach by  Paul Herzog, Ocean Friendly Gardens Coordinator for the Surfrider Foundation, and by Greg Weber, Executive Director of the California Urban Water Conservation Council.

EPA WaterSense is excited to continue the H2Otel Challenge through 2015! EPA launched the WaterSense H2Otel Challenge in February 2014 to encourage hotels to ACT: assess water use and savings opportunities, change products or processes to incorporate best management practices, and track their water-saving progress and achievements.

WaterSense needs help spreading the word about the H2Otel Challenge and is counting on our partners to encourage hotel customers in their service area to implement water efficiency best management practices. WaterSense is hosting a Recruiting Rally from February 1 to June 1, 2015 to incentivize this outreach. Any organization or individual can recruit hotels to sign up for WaterSense's H2Otel Challenge, but only WaterSense promotional partners are eligible to earn a top recruiter prize.
