Biodiversity Protection Virtual Symposium

Protecting & Enhancing Local Ecosystems


One of the co-benefits of green infrastructure is that it provides pollinator habitat and supports local biodiversity. Many municipalities offer incentives for designing with pollinators in mind. Join GRHC’s Green Infrastructure For Biodiversity Protection and Enhancement Symposium to understand the critical role living architecture plays in resilient and diverse urban ecosystems. Learn about the design principles that support biodiverse projects and enhance their performance.
