Homeowners, business owners, nonprofit groups, and government officials are invited to attend the 2011 Seattle Watersheds Forum – Partnerships in Action tonight at REI. The event is free, and I’ll be moderating the discussion panels.

The city of Seattle event will show interested folks how to make green stormwater projects happen in their own backyards and businesses. The first panel will focus on how to create successful partnerships and share resources to create projects that will improve water quality and protect Puget Sound. The second panel will hear from folks who have hands-on experience using rain gardens and cisterns on their own property.

It should be a great forum with lots of very practical, news-you-can-use information that will empower people interested in making their neighborhoods and business areas greener, more inviting spaces.
