Climate-Proofing Dogpatch & Potrero Hill
The GBD is co-sponsoring a series of workshops Jan 27-29 on the very localized impacts of climate change - drought, flooding, sea level rise - and how surrounding development will alter their effect on our district. We will look at what we can do on a neighborhood level to reduce the negative impacts of climate change and to become more resilient. Hope Rising of the Washington State University will lead the series of workshops. High school and college students are welcome. There is no charge to attend but you must sign up at Greenbenefit.org/Workshop
