Iowa's Living Roadways Annual Celebration & Luncheon:

Making Waves in Iowa


Thursday, November 7, 2019
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Gateway Center • 2100 Green Hills Dr • Ames, Iowa

 

For more than two decades, Iowa’s Living Roadways has helped Iowa communities highlight the unique traits that encourage tourism and quality of life. We help you showcase the best of your town—whether that’s by envisioning a new amphitheater surrounded by beautiful trees, a community trail winding through a native prairie, or signs featuring your town’s unique history. 

 

This year we will take a closer look at issues surrounding water quality and quantity in your town, including storm water management, river front features, “daylighting” waterways, bioswales, rain gardens, wildlife habitat and more. We may live in a landlocked state, but together our green efforts will make waves across the state. 


 
Our keynote speaker this year is Larry Weber, Director of Hydroscience and Engineering at the University of Iowa and co-founder of the Iowa Flood Center. Larry will talk about how native plants play a role in soaking up floodwater.

 

The meal will be provided for past, current and prospective participants of Iowa’s Living Roadways programs, as well as partners and vendors.  Click here to view the agenda for the day.

 

Registration is now closed.
