Description
1. Stormwater to Street Trees: Cultivating Urban Trees for Stormwater Management Urban trees can be an important partner in your stormwater management program. Trees and canopy can augment traditional stormwater infrastructure and provide a low-cost, environmentally-friendly solution to reducing loads on systems that are at, or exceeding, capacity. More and more communities are offering, or considering, stormwater credits for trees in new and re-development projects. To realize these benefits, planting site designs must account for the detention and infiltration of stormwater and provide adequate soil volume to support root growth, tree health, and the mature stature of large canopy trees. This presentation will explore design considerations and projects that have successfully incorporated stormwater management with urban tree planting. 2. How BEMP serves the Ecosystem, the Community and the Students The mission of the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program is science, education, and stewardship of the Rio Grande and its watershed through long-term, hands-on student research of ecosystem response and function to inform public policy. Education helps cultivate an understanding and respect, not just for our own bosque, but the planet as a whole. There is nothing greater than empowerment through understanding.
