The “typical” landscape can easily improve water resource practices, wildlife habitat and land stewardship. The benefits of improving the environment are many including reducing your water use, infiltrating more run-off, creating more area for birds and butterflies, reducing chemical use, less lawn mowing, and controlling invasive species.

This education program will cover a variety of techniques for transforming your landscape, including the use of Rain Barrels, Rain Gardens, and the selection and the use of native plants.
