Ballard Green Building Talk #6: An Exploration of Green Roofs

Event Date: 
09/09/2013 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Event Location: 
Ballard Library
5614 22nd Avenue Northwest

As our cities expand and population grows, the need for urban green space is greater than ever. Yet a vast expanse is sitting right above our heads, unused and unloved. By replanting our rooftops, we can reduce the urban heat island effect, sequester rainfall to reduce the strain on drainage sys- tems, scrub the air of pollutants and CO2, and provide respite from city noise.
