SITES is excited to announce that we’ve released several new educational offerings on our new Education page. These courses are designed to help grow your knowledge on SITES and sustainable landscape design, development and management.

Education on SITES

Visit our Education page to get started now. As noted below, SITES courses are available for free at the introductory level. You may also select courses a la carte that are specific to the SITES rating system or simply related to SITES topics. You may also access these courses through a subscription to Education @USGBC.
