Join us November 11 to discover OpenTreeMap’s new Green Infastructure module

Do you wish you could map more than trees? As climates change and regions face severe heat, drought, and weather events, more organizations are promoting innovative techniques to harvest rain water, prevent stormwater runoff, and conserve water in general. OpenTreeMap can assist with managing those initiatives by tracking the location of bioswales, rain barrels, and other water conservation features.

We hope you’ll join us for a webinar on Wednesday, November 11 from 2-3pm EST to discover the new OpenTreeMap Green Infrastructure module.

Deb Boyer, OpenTreeMap Project Manager, will be joined by Philip Silva, Co-Founder and Co-Director of TreeKIT, to discuss how Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal Conservancy uses OpenTreeMap’s bioswale tracking features to fulfill their mission of increasing environmental stewardship.

During this webinar, you will learn:

  • How OpenTreeMap can be used for gathering and maintaining data related to rain barrels, bioswales, and other features
  • How you can increase public education of the benefits of green infrastructure resources
  • How you can promote installation and stewardship of green infrastructure resources

The webinar is Wednesday November 12, 2104 at 1:00pm EDT

Andrew Thompson (OpenTreeMap), Erica Smith Fichman (TreePhilly), and Lee Mueller (Friends of Grand Rapids Parks) will talk about three outreach events our organizations have done in urban forestry, and discuss tips and tricks your urban forestry group can use with your events and marketing to expand to new audiences. During this webinar, you will learn about:

  • A general framework for organizing events and campaigns geared toward exciting audiences and communities with little experience with urban forestry

  • “Lessons learned” from three specific case studies organized by a government, nonprofit, and commercial company

You can try what TreePhilly and Yards Brewing Company did a few months ago as they celebrated the First Annual Philadelphia Arbrew Day, an evening of beer, trees, tees, and freebies to get their community members involved planting trees.
