Stormwater runoff can bring sediment and pollutants to our local streams and waterways. A rain garden is a useful tool for homeowners to help treat and reduce stormwater before it becomes harmful runoff, while also creating a beautiful native plant garden filled with wildflowers. Reducing stormwater runoff helps reduce erosion and pollution in our creeks and rivers. Rain gardens can also help to recharge groundwater resources. This class will provide you with an overview of the function of a rain garden, how to install a rain garden on your own property, and how to keep your rain garden healthy and working properly for years to come.
This event is a partnership between NCBG and Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association.
