2018 International Stream Daylighting Series

May 18 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on May 18, 2018 at 4:00pm

The International Stream Daylighting Series is a gathering of community members, professionals, and educators to share visions, insights, and ideas about uncovering urban creeks and rivers, in a process known as daylighting. Daylighting, a multi-disciplinary approach to the fields of planning, engineering, architecture, natural sciences, social sciences, and business, will be viewed through the lens of urban hydrology. Local and state government agencies, non-profit organizations, and community leaders will move beyond watershed issues to solutions to revitalizing lost riparian habitats. As Ann Riley – a pioneer of stream daylighting in Berkeley, California – explains, “Stream restoration [and daylighting] is neighborhood restoration” (Urban Stream Restoration 1998).

Cities, Water, & Interdisciplinary Planning & Engineering
Join Tim Dekker of LimnoTech for a discussion on the need to find a dynamic balance between the urban environment and the hydrologic and ecologic requirements of the streams, rivers, harbors and estuaries they border. Cities, Water, and Interdisciplinary Planning and Engineering describes multidisciplinary creative efforts, in the cities of Toronto, St Louis, Austin, Tulsa, and Dallas, who are undertaking major modifications to their waterways and adjacent neighborhoods, creating new public parks and novel ecological systems that bring public open space, quality of place, beauty, and value creation to cities.

Folsom Corridor: Jane Jacobs Walk
Join the Seven Canyons Trust and Jane Jacobs Walk for a walking conversation, starting at 4PM, to explore the Folsom Corridor, an effort to create a two-mile, paved trail and daylight the waters of City Creek.
