This full-day training led by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and hosted by the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership will introduce fundamental green infrastructure concepts and practices that can play a critical role in making New Jersey’s coastal and inland communities more resilient to natural hazards.
• Local speakers will share expertise on New Jersey’s freshwater and marine coastal ecosystems, existing green infrastructure projects across the State, and ways in which green infrastructure has been integrated into planning processes and policy in New Jersey municipalities.
• Participants will learn about a range of natural assets and green infrastructure approaches that can improve community resilience through interactive activities and group discussion.
• Participants will make valuable connections with a diverse group of both new and experienced green infrastructure practitioners across the state, and come out of the workshop with concept plans to share with their municipalities
