Stormwater runoff is impacting our streams and watersheds, causing declines in water quality, degraded fish habitat, stream bank erosion, flash floods, and reductions in groundwater. The increase in impervious surfaces (parking areas, streets, and rooftops) where water cannot infiltrate into the ground is a major source of polluted stormwater that damage our streams.This program, developed in cooperation with Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Pennsylvania Environmental Council, will focus on designing, installing and caring for landscapes that benefit our local environment by reducing stormwater, flooding, and water pollution. You will learn how to design, select appropriate plants, amend soils, and install a rain garden on your property, while taking part in the installation of a rain garden at Frances Slocum State Park. Help protect your watershed and improve your property with an attractive and functional rain garden.
