Managing our Stormwater, from Gutter to Gator
June 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Learn about natural techniques for cleansing and conserving stormwater for humans and wildlife, at any scale–backyard to campus to region. Our bayous and bays are greatly impacted by the quality of the stormwater flowing into them, and now is a great time to start improving it with practices we can implement at home, our towns, or beyond. The workshop is open to everyone. There is no cost to attend but registration is required by 6/20. Lunch is included with registration. Click the green sign up button to register.
