OCTOBER 6th, 2016: Webinar, Post-Fire Funding: What's Available & How to Access It. Earn 1 PDH / 0.1 CEUs. Are you tasked with emergency erosion control response after a fire? Fire mitigation planning before a fire event occurs is the key to obtaining funding after a fire event. Do you know what funding resources are out there? How they work? to apply for them (and win)? In this webinar, they'll start with a look at current wildfire trends, behaviors, and impacts, and illustrate the importance of mitigation planning before a fire event. They'll overview the potential post-fire environmental impacts and hazards (e.g., hydrologic, geotechnical, geomorphic), and how you can identify these at your sites.

OCTOBER 24th, 2016: Train-the-Trainer Workshop: Integrating Water into Land Use Planning, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. This free workshop is targeted to local government planners and water providers who want to be trained to provide educational workshops in their community and/or region to explore issues of water and land use planning and how to develop effective plans and implementation strategies for water conservation. Participants will be guided in three training modules and learn how to conduct educational workshops for local government leaders in their region. The modules will help trainers enhance communication and provide specific land use techniques regarding water efficiency and land use. The Colorado Water Conservation Board with support from the Department of Local Affairs are coordinating this educational effort. This Train-the-Trainer workshop is being offered in conjunction with the American Planning Association, Colorado State Conference in Colorado Springs at the Antlers Hotel.
The training workshop is free, but space is limited. Click HERE to register.

OCTOBER 25TH, 2016: River Network webinar, Water Scarcity as a Catalyst for Integrated Water Management – Creating Multiple Benefits for Your Community and River, 2:00 pm Eastern - 3:30 pm Eastern. At scales ranging from the neighborhood and city to the watershed and basin, some communities are doing the work of breaking down the silos in water management to increase sustainability and equitably maximize benefits across the community and watershed. So, what does “Integrated Water Management” mean for your watershed and your community? Where has it been used and what are the benefits and challenges? Can it help your community achieve “triple bottom line” (environmental, social and economic) benefits? Join them to learn how communities in Washington and San Francisco – driven by limited water resources – are seeking ways to integrate water management with other sectors and at varying scales, from the Basin to the building level.
