The 2017 International Stream Daylighting Series is a gathering of community members, professionals, and educators to share visions, insights, and ideas about uncovering urban creeks and rivers, in a process known as daylighting. Daylighting, a multi-disciplinary approach to the fields of planning, engineering, architecture, natural sciences, social sciences, and business, will be viewed through the lens of urban hydrology. Local and state government agencies, non-profit organizations, and community leaders will move beyond watershed issues to solutions to revitalizing lost riparian habitats. As Ann Riley – a pioneer of stream daylighting in Berkeley, California – explains, “Stream restoration [and daylighting] is neighborhood restoration” (Urban Stream Restoration 1998).
