Presented by: Laura Anderson and Ed Zygmunt
Do you want to do something good for your local environment and have fun doing it? Well here's your chance to learn how to create your very own backyard rain garden with Laura Anderson, Environmental Education Coordinator at the Wyoming County Conservation District and Ed Zygmunt from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. Rain gardens help improve the environment and reduce flooding by absorbing and purifying stormwater runoff from rooftops, driveways, parking lots and other impervious surfaces. In addition to adding value to your property, rain gardens provide beneficial habitat for pollinating insects and songbirds. Following the program, attendees will have the opportunity to visit the rain garden at the Dietrich which was sponsored by the Williams Companies.
