Oklahoma City residents wanting to learn more about green infrastructure can participate in a series of free monthly classes offered through the City of Oklahoma City.

The first class, Successful and Sustainable Landscapes, will take place from 3-5 p.m. on Thursday, February 2 in the Community Room of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, 1000 N Broadway Avenue.

Presenter Brian Dougherty will discuss practical ideas for people to plant and maintain landscapes in Oklahoma City. Dougherty is a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects and Director of the Parks & Public Spaces Initiative at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

The class is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

The series was a recommendation of a taskforce studying green infrastructure for the City. Green infrastructure highlights the importance of the natural environment as a contributing part of the City’s infrastructure.
