Green-infrastructure meeting to see final Green Infrastructure Network Map at 6 p.m. Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Green-infrastructure planning recently featured on KUAF radio at this link.

Greetings from the Green Infrastructure Planning Executive Group,

We have finished our Green Infrastructure Network Map and filed our final report; come see how the plan turned out and what your contribution has helped create. 

We'll look at how the Green Infrastructure Network Map can assist in the planning process.  We’ll talk about what how we can accomplish what we all would like to see happen in the future.  There is a homespun analogy for the many implementation possibilities that are out there and the flexible approach that serves well for assembling the best means to complete a project - it’s called an “implementation quilt”.  We’ll talk about some of the choices we have for assembling the patchwork of tools that can be applied to many types of projects.

Join us on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 at the Pat Walker Center for Seniors on the Washington Regional Hospital campus.

Time:  6:00 - 8:00pm             
              6:00 - 6:30 showing of our gorgeous new informative video, ”Green Infrastructure in our Communities”
              6:30 - 7:30 slide presentation
              7:30 - 8:00 Reception and view the final maps
 Location:  Pat Walker Center for Seniors
               12 E Appleby Road, Fayetteville
On behalf of Fayetteville Natural Heritage Association, Arkansas Forestry Commission and Beaver Water District we hope to see you and your guest there.

"Green Infrastructure is our nation's life support system - an interconnected network of waterways, wetlands, woodlands, wildlife habitats, and other natural areas; greenways, parks and other conservation lands; working farms, ranches and forests; and wilderness and other open spaces that support native species, maintain natural ecological processes, sustain air and water resources and contribute to the health and quality of life for America's communities and people." USDA Forest Service, Green Infrastructure Working Group's definition of Green Infrastructure.
