Discover what a living roof is and what an amazing ecosystem it becomes — whether you want to install one or understand and appreciate their value!  Learn the ins and outs of what a living roof is during a ZOOM presentation Wednesday, March 17. at 7 pm. Janet Hall, former WSU Extension Island County Waste Wise Program coordinator, and her spouse, Nicole Luce, will lead you on the journey of what a living roof has to offer as wildlife habitat and protection of our natural resources. Janet and Nicole built their sustainable house in 2006. One important component was to install a living roof. The learning curve was steep but worth the effort. The presentation will discuss the benefits of green roofing, which include waste diversion, stormwater management, and energy efficiency.

This meeting will not be recorded for viewing afterwards, so we really hope you can join us live.
