|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
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.
