Conference Resources

Post event update: we are in process of compiling recordings and presentations. Watch this space for event resources.

 

Hosted by the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR), U.S. EPA Region 9, and the CA Department of Toxic Substances Control’s (DTSC) Office of Brownfields, the California Land Recycling Conference is the premier event for professionals working on land reuse. Focusing on the most timely issues both unique to California and resonating with the national big-picture, the Conference is an innovative space for learning and connecting.

Attendees will hear about the wide array of funding, resources, and peer learning opportunities that are available to support them on their land reuse journey. If you are looking to build your community’s capacity for land reuse or want to prepare for the influx of funding, CALRC is the event of the year!

We’re thrilled to announce that we are back in person this year with a full lineup of timely and trending land reuse topics, from Interagency Collaboration to vapor intrusion. Because in this redevelopment renaissance, centering equity, health, and science is not just best-practice – it’s essential to success. Come reuse, rebuild, and revitalize! Join us June 21-23, 2022 in Carson, CA.
