Low Impact Development
Low Impact Development (LID) is a design approach modeled after nature to manage stormwater runoff in a manner that mimics natural hydrologic processes, providing benefits for water quality and mitigating negative impacts of stormwater runoff on downstream resources including streams and rivers. Come learn the basics of LID, including the use of structural best management practices (BMPs) such as rain gardens, bio-swales, cisterns and green roofs. Presenter Jacob Aalf, PLA, is a landscape architect with the San Antonio River Authority.
The program is suggested for adults and is presented by the Alamo Area Texas Master Naturalists, the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy and San Antonio Parks & Recreation. Free and no registration required. A donation to the PHP Conservancy of $3/ person OR $5/ family is suggested.
