2021 Coastal Certificate Program: Sustainable Landscapes from Soil to Sea
S21/19
The Coastal Certificate program is offered to those who wish to familiarize themselves with current environmental issues unique to our coastal waters and Long Island Sound, while learning about ways to landscape more sustainably. In a time when climate change is taking on increasing significance, the Coastal Certificate Program will address how and why the transition to sustainable landscapes is not just a good idea, but a global environmental imperative.

The Coastal Certificate is designed to generate ambassadors of alternatives to nutrient and chemically intensive landscaping practices for Connecticut coastal and watershed residents. The outreach component will be geared specifically to spreading the word about sustainable landscaping through projects, educational materials, and other creative ideas.

In addition to covering coastal environmental issues, the Coastal Certificate program will feature speakers that address exciting ways to reduce or rethink lawns, create plant habitats that attract birds and pollinating insects, design for sustainability using native plants, and share tools and resources for effective outreach. The field trip [TBD] will relate to class topics and be in, or about, a coastal location.
Participants must attend all classes and complete 10 hours of approved outreach activities to receive the Coastal Certificate Certification. Reading resources will be provided. Those enrolled will receive 6 AMG credits upon completion.
