    More Green with Less Water: Spreading Awareness & Changing Practices

    Treating urban runoff began at the Westwood Greenway in October 2020. Native landscaping (both planted and voluntary) and the biodiversity it provides is showcased. Modeling the multiple benefits of the greenway concept, the sustainable power of natives, and the potential for water conservation in the face of climate change is our goal. We will spread our concept to E-Line Metro riders with a vibrant mural and to learners of all ages on-site as a place for tours, school field trips, research, and local workforce job training.
