As part of the Green Industry Continuing Education Series, University of Nevada, Reno Extension is offering “Watershed-Wise Residential Design” noon-1 p.m., Nov. 4, at the Extension office at 4955 Energy Way in Reno, as well as via Zoom.

“The Green Industry Continuing Education Series is a great way to maintain professional certifications conveniently during your lunch hour,” Chad Morris, Extension Commercial Horticulture Program coordinator, said. “This workshop is meant to provide tips to landscapers to help them be a part of protecting our watershed.”

The class, taught by landscape architect Carrie Jensen, will discuss the local watershed, potential landscape management impacts, and how green professionals can implement residential Low Impact Development (LID) management strategies and technologies for fostering a healthy watershed. The class offers Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper (QWEL) Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
