Springfield Sites Tour: Friday, June 14th
Keith Zaltzberg (RDG Principal and Springfield Projects Manager) will lead a tour of three sites in Springfield, MA that tackle urban stream dynamics, rainwater catchment and infiltration, and urban farming. We’ll go from big picture challenges and opportunities to small-scale interventions that build ecological resilience in urban settings.
