DCMGA & Wild Ones: Soak it Up – Rain Garden Basics
February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Here in Door County, we are surrounded by water. But how often do we think about protecting the quality of those water bodies? A rain garden is a simple way to help reduce runoff from our home landscapes, keeping excess nutrients and other pollutants out of the waters that surround us. In this program, we will discuss what a rain garden is (and isn’t), how to plan and construct one, and suitable plants to include. We’ll also talk about the environmental benefits of rain gardens beyond reduced runoff and improved water quality.
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be in person at Crossroads at Big Creek at 6:30 p.m. The lecture will be recorded and available afterwards on the DCMGA website at https://www.dcmga.org/
The Newbern lecture is presented in collaboration with Crossroads at Big Creek and Wild Ones of the Door Peninsula.
