The California Urban Water Conservation Council seeks your input to accelerate the pace of change towards "Achieving a New Normal in California Landscaping".

It is widely known that reforming California's urban landscapes to use less water, fewer chemicals and more climate-appropriate plants will yield huge benefits to our state in terms of water conservation, health, and biodiversity. And the drought has brought many of these issues to the forefront.

But systemic change is needed at the state and regional level to make sustainable landscaping a widely accepted practice across the state. The "Achieving a New Normal in California Landscaping" symposia seek to bring together the leaders of state and regional agencies, non profits, and businesses to identify partnership opportunities, policy changes and other solutions that will make it easier for more Californians to adopt sustainable landscape practices.

Each symposium starts with presentations in which state agency leaders outline their current programs, challenges, and plans that affect landscapes in California.

Next, practitioners from cities, counties, non profit organizations and state agencies will share successful projects that demonstrate how partnership, education and local engagement achieved positive strides towards more sustainable landscapes.

In the afternoon, attendees will participate in facilitated discussions to identify challenges, build partnerships, and define action steps that can be taken to move California forward.

Please join us for this important event, in either Northern or Southern California.

Get inspired. Join the conversation. Take action.

Your voice is needed to jump-start the movement toward achieving a  "New Normal" in California landscapes.
