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 landscape costs; and human and wildlife habitat improvements.
Please join us for a brown bag lunch in collaboration with the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, California Chapter (www.apldca.org), on the Watershed Approach to California Landscapes. We will view a short film that emphasizes the importance of permeable landscapes in protecting watershed health.
Following that, Paul Herzog of the Surfrider Foundation (http://www.surfrider.org/programs/entry/ocean-friendly-gardens) will expand on the topic and describe California’s new Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance.
