Didn't think green roofs could grow in arid Colorado Springs? Guess again! Westin Solutions, makers of the GreenGrid green roof system, will share how they've created green roofs in Colorado Springs and along the front range. The modular system works flat-topped existing buildings, such as those throughout downtown Colorado Springs and the rest of our community.
Green roofs can help reduce energy costs, reduce heat island effect, manage stormwater, sequester CO2, and provide medium to support native planting or gardens.
Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation. Those who attend have the opportunity to win a door prize tote bag made from recycled downtown banners as a demonstration project (pictured).
