Plaster Creek Stewards
Working to restore health and beauty to the Plaster Creek Watershed
Spring Event: Creek Friendly Yards
When water leaves our yards, it takes various things with it into the storm drains and local waterways. How we landscape and care for our green spaces has direct impacts on our waterways. This event is designed for people interested in learning how to care for a yard or green space in beautiful ways while protecting our local streams and creeks. At this morning event we will discuss how fertilizing safely, using compost to replace fertilizers, planting shrubs, trees and native plants for biodiversity and diverse habitats creates healthy, creek-friendly yards. Following the presentation we will head out to the restorative activity of your choice: transplanting native plants in our greenhouse, planting trees and shrubs at various locations, or a special opportunity to "rescue" native plants at Shadyside Park prior to floodplain reconstruction.
April 30, 9:00am-12:00pm
Begin at the Bunker Interpretive Center for a short presentation followed by various creek friendly activities in the watershed.
Light refreshments will be provided.
