Shoreline Gardening for Healthy Lakes – March 18th, 6:00-7:30pm
Healthy shorelines provide many benefits, especially when it comes to keeping our lakes free from pollution and places where we want to live and play. In this webinar, you will learn what rain gardens are and how this special type of low maintenance garden can filter pollutants, recharge the groundwater and reduce pollution of local waterways. You will also learn the attributes of intact, healthy shorelines, and what services they provide, including habitat, improved water quality and decreased erosion.
