Creating Pollinator Habitat Along Roadsides - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Jun 14

Pollinators are essential to our health and to the health of ecosystems. However, pollinators are in trouble. With more than 17 million acres of land in roadsides in the United States alone, transportation rights-of-way are a significant, yet often overlooked, resource for pollinator conservation. Many of these roadway environments offer excellent opportunities to increase pollinator habitats. Landscape architects with transportation agencies across the country can take steps to improve the quality of roadside vegetation to benefit pollinators, steps that can also maintain public safety and improve public good will. Presenters will discuss roadsides, roadside design, and roadside vegetation management and how these affect the establishment and sustainability of pollinator habitats. An overview of best management practices will be provided, as well as a summary of resources for practitioners. Presenters will provide perspectives covering the eastern forest, arid southwest, and central prairies.

Objectives:

  • Understand ways in which roadside design and management can support pollinators.
  • Observe case studies where pollinators have been incorporated successfully in roadside plantings across the United States.
  • Learn about the obstacles in implementing pollinator plantings and how to overcome them.
  • Learn the do’s and don’ts for sourcing plant materials for roadside plantings.
  • Identify the vegetation zones on the roadside and know what types of plant material can be installed.
  • Understand what the Clear zone is and how it impacts pollinators.
  • Learn how road safety and pollinator habitat are compatible.

Designing Trees into the Urban Landscape & Integrating Stormwater Management - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Jun 19

Using urban trees as green infrastructure for our cities is arguably the most sustainable stormwater management solution available. The possibilities that exist to turn stormwater runoff from a hindrance to an opportunity are limitless. This presentation uses GreenBlue Urban’s 25 years of field experience, in conjunction with world-renowned researchers such as the University of Abertay Dundee and E2 Design Labs, to examine the opportunities available for integrating street tree planting with stormwater management systems for truly sustainable urban landscapes. Referred to as our “3P Approach,” this seminar reviews how landscape architects can Plan, Provide, and Protect green infrastructure in our cities to create truly sustainable urban landscapes.

Objectives:

  • Understand how integrating stormwater with urban tree planting benefits the landscape infrastructure.
  • Learn about options for urban streetscape systems in the design of sustainable landscapes.
  • Gain understanding of what is being achieved on a global scale utilizing these design techniques.
