WEBINARS

WEBSITES TO EXPLORE

The purpose of exploring these links is to briefly familiarize yourself with the stormwater resources and rainscaping practices that are available on these pages. Website exploration is designed to take less than an hour. However, be aware that if you dive into any one of these links more deeply, you could easily spend much longer absorbing the content that’s available. Have fun, go at your own pace, and please invest the amount of time that feels right for you!

    The purpose of exploring these links is to familiarize yourself with Environmental Literacy and GIS.  Website exploration is designed to take about an hour.  However, be aware that if you decide to try the GIS Mapping Application, you could easily spend much longer.  Have fun, go at your own pace, and please invest the amount of time that feels right for you!  Also, please note that GIS does not always play nicely with Mac products.  I’ve had much better luck on a PC, using either Microsoft Explorer or Google Chrome.
