    Heidi Leuszler (Parkland University) and Eliana Brown (Illinois Extension) led an overview of the National Green Infrastructure Certification Program.


The Land & Water iCAP Team covers the majority of the objectives for the former ALUFS and WSW Teams, with the exception of the Food objective. This group will focus on land use, agriculture on campus, carbon sequestration, water, and stormwater issues outlined in the Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP). The goals for the group include conserving potable water, sustainably handling stormwater, and reducing emissions from on-campus agriculture and land use.
