Sustainable Landscape Stewards: A training course for community leaders

Sustainable Landscape Stewards

A Training Course for Community Leaders


Community members, particularly those who serve in municipal government or on town boards, conservation districts, or watershed groups are encouraged to participate in the nine-class training course led by Lake Champlain Sea Grant staff and area experts. 


The objectives of the course are for students to learn about the science and policy behind land use impacts on water quality and the emerging field of green stormwater infrastructure (GSI). Participants will gain knowledge and skills to successfully advocate for, design, implement and maintain sustainable landscape projects.
