A green roof symposium will be held Tuesday at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center, 300 East Third Street. The Lyric is one of three Lexington structures having a roof covered with vegetation.
Green roofs are attractive and help the environment because they reduce runoff and help reduce heating and cooling costs.
The workshop will focus on case studies and local policies about green roofs. It is sponsored by the city and Green Roofs for Healthy Cities. The cost is $99 for students and $199 for others. A limited number of full scholarships are available.
