  • June 2021 GrIP Meeting: Urban Forestry & GSI at Expedia

    Date: June 24, 2021
    Time: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
    Join us on June 24th from 12-2 PM for a virtual meeting on both the important role urban trees have in the GSI sector and how Expedia’s new campus has incorporated GSI. </p>
     
    First you will hear from Ali Lakehart of SPU on urban forests-- trees reduce pollutants in the air, slow and capture stormwater runoff, cool the environment, and improve our mental health. Ali will share with us more about Seattle’s urban forest, their experience with urban forest management, and connect this work to GRIP’s focus.</p>
     
    Afterwards, Jenifer Clapham from KPFF and Roderick Wylie from Surface Design will talk about Expedia’s new campus here in Seattle, highlighting stormwater features that were incorporated into the project designs and providing you with resources to take a self-guided “tour” of the site which is viewable from the Elliot Bay Trail.</p>
