Event Details

US Army Corps of Engineers offers free webinar on Engineering with Nature Initiative: Lessons Learned, Needs and Opportunities.

Join the Army Corps of Engineers on Tuesday, July 23 at 1:00pm CT / 2:00pm ET for a conversation on Engineering with Nature (EWN). EWN combines research projects, field demonstrations, and communication activities to promote sustainable, resilient infrastructure systems by leveraging natural systems and processes. Unlike hardened infrastructure such as seawalls or rip rap, natural structures are resilient, adapting to changes in physical, biological, geologic, and chemical processes. The use of nature-based features takes advantage of the resilient properties of natural systems. In addition, incorporating these practices reduces maintenance costs while providing ecosystem services.
This webinar will provide an overview of the initiative, highlighting lessons learned, needs and opportunities for the future. Click here to register.
