Once a new date has been confirmed, attendees will be contacted. Please contact Leah Wirgau with any questions.
Join us as we discuss opportunities for addressing these challenges, exploring the questions:
How is climate change impacting the Lehigh Valley?
What can we do to make the Lehigh Valley more resilient to these climate impacts?
We are drawing experts from various industries, including wildland fire and the wildland urban interface, green stormwater infrastructure, MS4 stormwater management, and regional planning to present on this and more. If you are a designer, developer, operator, or consultant in the building industry, a business owner, a community member, work in Lehigh Valley municipalities, or are generally interested in climate resilience, this event is for you!
Molly Bourne from Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects will be featured as our keynote speaker, highlighting the work she and her team does to address climate impacts within urban spaces from a natural landscape perspective. Scroll down to learn more about Molly.
The event will also feature work from Penn State Lehigh Valley students related to sustainability in their courses.
Light fare will be provided. GBCI CE hours and AIA LUs pending approval.
