Green-Duwamish Watershed Workshop: Stewarding Public Lands and Waters with Encampments
February 25, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
SAVE THE DATE Monday, February 25th
As our region grows and changes, so is the nature of those experiencing homelessness and the environmental impacts to our public lands and waters. In this workshop we will gain a deeper understanding on the changing nature of who is living in our green spaces, their impacts and needs, available resources and collaborations to help maintain the environmental health of sites but also those encamped on them through new approaches which provide innovative and collaborative solutions. Our goal is not to solve homelessness but to better understand it, mitigate the environmental impacts, connect individuals to support services and promote positive behaviors of usage which in turn support the environmental health of these areas.
This is a workshop for professionals from organizations and agencies responsible for managing/stewarding public lands and waters – government planners, ecologists, land managers, those working in habitat restoration and water quality, etc.
An agenda and registration notice will be available January 15th at Green-Duwamish Watershed.org
