Applied Geography Bengal Pause: Campus Green Infrastructure Tour - September 23

Please join us for a Campus Green Infrastructure Tour to see what Buffalo State College is doing to protect our local waterways on Thursday, September 23, during Bengal Pause (12:15 to 1:30 p.m.). The tour will be led by Mary Perrelli, GIS lab supervisor in the Geography and Planning Department, and John Bleech, environmental programs coordinator in Environmental Health and Safety. We will meet in the lobby on the south side of the Technology Building at 12:15 p.m. and walk to different sites on campus. This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff.

Runoff from stormwater is a major cause of water pollution in urban areas. Green infrastructure systems such as rain gardens, bioswales, bioretention ponds, rainwater harvesting, and permeable pavement can be used to filter and absorb stormwater before it reaches local waterways.

Additional Applied Geography Bengal Pause activities will take place throughout the fall 2021 semester. Each activity is a low-stress, relaxed affair (many outdoors) designed to provide you with a unique hands-on experience. Consider these sessions an antidote to Zoom! Updated informational posters can be found in the Classroom Building, Science and Mathematics Complex (SAMC), and Campbell Student Union. More information is available under the “Applied Geography Bengal Pause” link on the left side of the Geography and Planning Department website under "News and Events."

These activities are brought to you by the Buffalo State Grant Allocation Committee and the Geography and Planning Department.
