On Feb. 13, join two practitioners as they dive into the SITES v2 rating system, the first rating system that is available to the public for use on any project to pursue certification as a sustainable landscape. The presentation will walk through the basic principles of the SITES system, review a few v2 certified projects, and discuss recent experience utilizing the rating system on a Federal project.

This will be an in-person lecture in Minneapolis, with video availability.

Following the presentation will be a brief introduction to the kick off for our SITES collaborative group.
