Announcing the 2023 Nevada Brownfields Workshops!August 7, 2023
We are thrilled to announce the "2023 Nevada Brownfields Workshops -- Connecting the Dots: Renew, Reuse, Revitalize", presented by the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR), US EPA, and NDEP and ocurring on September 7th at the America First Center (formerly known as the Lifeguard Arena) in Henderson and September 13th at the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City.
As the name suggests, these workshops will "connect the dots" and provide information on resources, funding, challenges, and strategies for redevelopment, leveraging both EPA and other federal and state resources. Prospective attendees do not need a brownfields program to attend! Get to know your technical assistance providers, learn from firsthand experience, and develop a community of practice.
Similar content will be provided at both workshops. Prospective attendees are asked to pick the date and location most convenient to them.

Early bird registration ends Friday, August 25th!
