As our climate changes and urban populations grow, more watersheds across the country are likely to experience severe stress, threatening our drinking water. Our urban stormwater management systems are further challenged by ever-increasing impervious surfaces in urbanized areas and changes in rainfall intensity leading to dangerous floods and poor water quality. How can conservation and nature-based solutuions protect these unique and fragile ecosystems and our future water supply? Our special guest is Kelly Blandford, of the Kansas Nature Conservancy.
