Nebraska Mixed Bag Lecture Series: Green Roofs

Friday, May 4, 2018
11 a.m-1 p.m.

UNL Ruth Leverton Hall, Room 204, East Campus. A UNL parking permit is required.

$5 per person

Vegetated or green roofs are evolving and spreading across North America. This presentation examines the history and benefits of such roofs, then describes ten years of research by Richard Sutton, professor of Agronomy and Horticulture at UNL. Green roofs have been around for ages, but with the impacts of impervious urban surfaces, declining water quality and accelerated storm runoff, green roofs have become a tool in creating sustainable living architecture.

When the recent green roof movement arrived in North America from Europe, it was tied to plants and materials developed for cool, humid climes. Cool and humid does not describe the Great Plains, so green roofs needed adaptation to prairies. Existing roofs normally lack the load-bearing capacity required for green roof installation, so Sutton has tested and found a blend of native plants and recycled materials adapted to environmental stress and light in weight. He’ll share a small completed example of such an approach on a nearby field trip.

This lecture will include a short walk to visit the East Campus Recreation Center green roof project.
