Learn about storm water management strategies that help reduce pollution in our waterways at 7:30 p.m. in the Community House Auditorium.
Julie Wildschut and Deanna Geelhoed from the Calvin University-based Plaster Creek Stewards will talk about the importance of restoring the health and beauty of the Plaster Creek watershed through green infrastructure, including rain gardens and water barrels. Rain gardens can actually reduce rain runoff by allowing storm water to soak into the gardens rather than have it flow into storm drains and surface water which causes erosion, water pollution and flooding. Rain gardens also cut down on the amount of pollution reaching nearby creeks, streams and rivers.
This event is free & open to the public.
