I love things that are new. The smell of a new car. Wearing a new pair of tennis shoes. Ringing in a new year. In many regards, considering the things I just listed, a lot of new experiences are experiences we’ve had before. And though it’s not the first time, we feel the same joy and elation over them as if it could have been the very first time.

We buy new cars. We’re constantly buying new shoes. We really can’t avoid a new calendar year. And Forester University will always be coming up with new and exciting webinars.

I’ve got three to tell you about, and one of them is free!

First in the lineup is Module 2 of the Permeable Pavement Master Class. This one is slated for Wednesday, June 17. Permeable pavement systems can be effective and sustainable…if you design it and build it right from the get-go. And the design (and construction) is in the details.

David Hein leads the second session in our Permeable Pavement Master Class Series to explore the key elements and best practices in the design and construction of permeable pavements (porous asphalt, pervious concrete, permeable interlocking concrete, and grid pavements) through real-world worked examples of permeable pavement designs for roadways, shoulders, and parking areas.

The next is the free webinar, “Biotic Soil Media”! This one is scheduled for Thursday, June 25 and the presenter is Marc Theisen will help you explore Engineered Soil Media™ (ESM™) as a cost-effective alternative to topsoil, and the best practices in applying it to your projects. That includes how you can test your soil for organic content; select proper ESM™ application rates; calculate the cost benefits; and apply the best practices of what works (and what doesn’t) from real-world case studies and research.

The next webinar scheduled for July 8, is titled “Surviving a Media Crisis.” Join industry expert Melanie Goetz for her tips and tricks to survive any media crisis, including how to: assess the damage; create a communications and response plan; address, manage, and leverage the press; and know when it’s time for full damage control.

Finally, Dr. Jerald Fifield and Tina Wills help you to select the right rolled erosion control product (RECP) for your project. They’ll also talk about current erosion control blankets, turf reinforcement masts (TRMs) on the market (including their applications and limitations)…and how you can assess and select the best product for your project.

“Selecting the Best TRM/ECB for Your Project” is going to be on Thursday at 11 a.m. eastern time.

Remember, everything old is new again.
