California Student Leadership in Green Infrastructure (SLGI)

University of California, Davis

Formed in 2016 by Kevin Robert Perry, the California Student Leadership in Green Infrastructure (SLGI) is a group of inter-disciplinary students who utilize Tactical Green Infrastructure to design, build, research, and advocate for simple and cost-effective green infrastructure projects on the UC Davis campus and surrounding California communities.  The SLGI group has completed several built green infrastructure retrofits on the UC Davis campus and is currently working with the Davis Senior High School in retrofitting a courtyard as an interactive rain garden landscape.  SLGI members also aim to connect with other students and professionals who have a passion for designing and building aesthetic and functional green spaces.  The mission for the SLGI group is to provide hands-on experience for students through building real projects, and to educate the public about green infrastructure by implementation of these projects.
