Native Garden Design for Water Management

 Registration is closed for this event
Learn to channel your property's stormwater runoff into a beautiful native garden.


This is an online workshop.

Learn how to create a beautiful native garden for wildlife, while managing water on your property.

Do you have more water on your home property than you are able to currently manage? In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to calculate the rain runoff volume of impervious surfaces (roof, driveway, etc.) and how to best design their landscape to capture stormwater to create a beautiful native garden that supports wildlife. Participants will engage in a hands-on exercise to build confidence in applying the calculation skills reviewed in the workshop.
