2007 Beyond the Guidebook Seminar attracts a province-wide audience

“We started the day with high expectations that the Beyond the Guidebook Seminar would prove to be a transformational event, and we exceeded those expectations as the day unfolded. Further, my prediction is that this event will become part of our green infrastructure folklore,” stated Kim Stephens. “A key is that those who were there come away inspired and start doing things differently in their day jobs as a result of what they learned by being part of the moment.”

In fact, development of the first spreadsheet version of the Water Balance Model was funded by SILG in 2001,” stated Laura Maclean.
