Come to our 2014 Fall Event:
Rain Gardens on Steroids: the role of trees and bio-swales in the fight against stormwater pollution
Saturday, October 11, 2014
Meet at the Bunker Interpretive Center
9:00 am - noon
Refreshments will be served.
Stormwater runoff is pollution. Think about this way - it's not just "storm-water" by the time it's piped into our local streams and waterways, it's storm-dirt, storm-fertilizer, storm-bacteria, and all sorts of other storm-pollution. One way to reduce stormwater pollution in our creeks, streams, and rivers is to capture stormwater where it falls using rain gardens and bio-swales. Join us for a brief educational presentation on the role of bio-swales in watershed restoration, followed by opportunities for planting native trees and plants in two large bio-swales, one on Calvin’s campus and one at Mel Trotter Ministries. These bio-swales will contribute to the restoration of the Plaster Creek Watershed by collecting and cleaning stormwater runoff from parking lots and other impervious surfaces.
