Rain gardens are beautiful landscaping features that capture, hold and soak in runoff from storms. They are specifically designed for areas where rain water habitually pools or to which it is deliberately channeled. Their loose, deep soils and deep-rooted native plants absorb water and filter pollutants.
Noon-3pm both days, get information and advice from local experts Susan Bryan and Catie Wytychak from the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Rain Garden Program. They’ll be at the HRWC-WCWRC booth to share some “deep-rooted” know-how including tips on site and plant selection, garden layout, installation, and maintenance.
You can start and take home some native plant seeds. Or grab a free Michigan Shoreland Stewards program booklet, a brand new 34-page resource for lake front property owners on using lake-friendly practices.
Admission is $5, children ages 12 and under are admitted for free. For FREE tickets contact Pam Labadie, firstname.lastname@example.org, (734)769-5123 x 602.
