Learn to Create a River-Friendly Garden

By | March 17th, 2017

Rain gardens are designed to capture precipitation and stormwater runoff so it recharges the aquifer and keeps pollutants out of our streams. Plus, they provide habitat for native pollinators and add beauty to our community.  Join Dr. Kristi MacDonald, RHA’s science director, at the North County Branch Library in Clinton on Tuesday, March 28 at 7pm to learn the basic function and design of rain gardens, including size and placement, soil amendment, and choices of native plantings.  Kristi will also go over the basic River-Friendly certification activities as most of them apply to landscaping and gardening, and will provide resources so you can create your own rain garden.
