CBLP is pleased to partner with The Watershed Institute to bring an adapted version of the Level 1 training to landscape professionals in New Jersey who design, install and maintain stormwater best management practices (BMPs) and conservation landscapes. As stormwater regulations evolve, landscape professionals are being asked to play a greater role in ensuring BMPs are built and managed for long-term success. This specialized hybrid online + field training class is based on a core set of standards in sustainable landscaping practice. It integrates appropriate regional resources for those who live and practice in New Jersey and surrounding areas, with materials from the CBLP training program.

Instruction and materials cover:

  • Design and installation of stormwater practices, with an emphasis on effective management practices
  • A visual system for inspecting BMPs
  • Conservation landscaping topics such as soils, invasive species, and incorporating native plants to benefit the environment
