MACo Summer Conference Session: Utilizing our Blue Infrastructure

What’s blue infrastructure?  Come to the MACo Summer Conference session sponsored by the MACo Park and Recreation Affiliate entitled “Utilizing Our Blue Infrastructure for Economic, Recreational and Environmental Benefits” on Thursday, August 19 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. and find out!

Increasing demands on Maryland’s blue infrastructure (aquatic resources), open spaces and their surrounding landscapes are becoming a reality as our state experiences continued growth.  In order to ensure that the state’s blue infrastructure continues to provide environmental, economic, cultural and recreational benefits it is important to identify places and collectively work to protect, restore and manage these resources. Working in partnership with regional, state and private partners, great strides can be made to conserve and properly manage the blue infrastructure.

Hear from our expert speakers from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources: Catherine McCall, Chesapeake and Coastal Program, and Christine Conn, Office for a Sustainable Future.
