Tuesday, August 18, 9:00 am – 11:00 am – Guiding the Rain: Aesthetic Form, Ecological Function

Rain gardens guide the rain away from storm drains while attracting wildlife and protecting streams, lakes, and ponds. These gardens store rain for a few hours, allowing gradual infiltration. The plants and soils also filter pollutants and remove nutrients to improve water quality.
