This workshop is part of the Earth Stewardship Initiative (ESI) Demonstration Project. In the workshop participants will learn about green infrastructure innovations and opportunities from City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services experts. Prior to the workshop, a field trip will also bring ESA participants to meet with city officials and visit green infrastructure sites. The workshop will include a group of advisory ecologists, environmental consultants and ESI fellows working together through a collaborative brainstorming session to develop strategies for integrating green infrastructure and experimental research into green infrastructure projects. The goal is to provide data on ecological value and ecosystem function of these urban sites.
Recognizing that gaps exist between the emergent scientific paradigms around green infrastructure and practical applications of green infrastructure in cities this workshop will be forum for dialogue between research ecologists and local practitioners.
