In-Depth Seminar 

Sustainable SITES Review & Case Study

The Sustainable SITES Initiative (SITES) defines what a sustainable site is and elevates the value of landscapes in the built environment. The SITES v2 Rating System is a set of guidelines and performance-based metrics that align land development and management with innovative sustainable design, covering areas such as soil, vegetation, water, materials and human health and well-being.

During this seminar, attendees will review local applications of SITES strategies, specifically a case study of the Forest Park Waterways project, which is currently in design and registered as a Sustainable SITES project. The Waterways project is in the southeast corner of Forest Park and includes the restoration of Bowl, Jefferson, and Round Lakes. The project will incorporate ecosystem services for the landscape and the Park; connecting the water way system, reducing potable water input in the Waterways, managing stormwater onsite, and restoring plantings to enhance the area.  The presentation will feature the importance of collaboration between the landscape architect, civil engineer, City of St. Louis, Forest Park Forever, and the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District.

The session will include a walking tour of the Waterways project, so come dressed to be outside and in comfortable shoes!
