Minnesota Stormwater Seminar Series
The Minnesota Stormwater Seminar Series brings exemplars of advanced stormwater innovation and knowledge to Minnesota to share what they’ve learned and how they’ve pushed the boundaries in the stormwater arena. The monthly seminar series is dedicated to stormwater and green infrastructure topics with an emphasis on successes and lessons learned from field implementation and applied research and evaluation, specifically for an audience of stormwater practitioners and professionals. Each event includes a presentation, panel discussion and Q&A with participants. See the detailed schedule at right for topics, presenters, dates, and times.
