    The Sustainable Landscape Management (SLM) foundation is simple – applying the right maintenance practices at the right time. The  program consists of a manual outlining sustainable landscape management principles and practices and a training class. Completion of the 4-hour training class and a passing score on the exam following the class earns you the Sustainable Landscape Management certificate.

    The SLM Certificate Program will...

    • Position your municipality/company as innovative and part of the
      sustainability solution.
    • Level the playing field for all maintenance providers by using the same standards.
    • Educate the public on what proper maintenance looks like.
    • Attract potential clients and new industry professionals.
    *Each class is from 8 AM - 12 PM. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Each registrant must purchase a copy of the SLM manual (you can do this during the registration process). The manual you purchase will be provided at the class. Price for class: $65, thanks to Northern Water Conservancy District subsidizing a portion of the registration fee (regularly $125). SLM manual price: $50.00 + tax.

    Please join us for our next Colorado WaterWise webinar.

    Colorado has long faced unique water challenges. Accelerating climate change and rapid population growth have added more complexity. Innovative water strategies have been part of Colorado’s history and are more important than ever for communities to better plan for and preserve their water supply. Next generation water and land use planning requires collaboration: bringing together the building and development community, water professionals and water policymakers, land use planners, and other important stakeholders to share best practices and learn about innovative water conservation and water reuse techniques.

    In this webinar we will hear from the principal and founder of a leading landscape architecture/urban design group covering big picture new development opportunities through Total Hydrology Planning. We will also hear about institutional opportunities for sustainable urban water management and water reuse from the Director of the Colorado State University’s Urban Water Center. In addition, the Director of Water Resources with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission will share their success in diversifying San Francisco’s local water supply portfolio through the implementation of conservation, groundwater, recycled water, onsite water recycling and other innovative programs.Join us for a deep dive into the biggest challenges facing communities as they strive to be better stewards of water, land, and life.


    Speakers:

    • Paula Kehoe is the Director of Water Resources with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC)
    • Dr. Sybil Sharvelle, Colorado State University
    • Craig L. Karn-ASLA, ULI Principal, Co-Founder Consilium Design
