Sustainable Sites Initiative Lecture

Allegra Bukojemsky, one of the founding members of the ASLA Sustainable Design and Development Professional Practice Network, will be in Cleveland to present a lecture on the Sustainable Sites Initiative (www.sustainablesites.org).  Allegra is a landscape architect based out of San Francisco with Biohabitats (www.biohabitats.com) who also has  an office in Cleveland. 

The Sustainable Sites Initiative is a multidisciplinary partnership developing voluntary guidelines and benchmarks for landscape sustainability. The Initiative will provide a basis for measuring and recognizing sustainability in landscape design, construction, and maintenance. By doing so, the Initiative will create incentives for project leaders to optimize opportunities to achieve maximum site performance in stormwater management, biodiversity protection, pollution reduction, and other types of resource stewardship. Ultimately, the metrics and targets identified through the metrics generated by the Initiative could be integrated with existing building rating credit systems such as LEED® in the future.

No cost to attend - No registration - Light refreshments served!
