As urban areas cover the land with roads and buildings, the vital services provided by our natural environment begin to fail. Stormwater flushes pollution into our rivers instead of soaking into the ground. Our cities heat up causing an increase in energy costs and adding to climate change. Without sufficient trees and gardens the quality of our air and water declines along with our quality of life.
The good news is that urban solutions are possible and Delaware is home to many state-of-the-art green infrastructure installations. Are you curious about green roofs, rain gardens or tree trenches? Attend this lecture by Gary Schwetz at the Delaware Center for Horticulture to learn about a variety of green infrastructure techniques and places where you can see examples of these best management practices at work in New Castle County.
