Our Russell A. Beierle Demonstration Rain Garden bloomed beautifully this summer. This rain garden by the dam off the boardwalk shows how a rain garden can look in your yard. These functional gardens collect sediment and allow water to disperse slowly into the ground. Homeowners can build a rain garden to collect drainage on their properties.
Do you have a Rain Garden? Do you use a Rain Barrel? Did you plant a barrier at your waterfront to protect the lake? Perhaps you made another property improvement to care for our Lakes. We are interested in collecting pictures of your projects! Send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 31 for inclusion in our November 22 Celebration slide show.
The Foundation’s October meeting is planned for Wednesday, October 26 at 7:00pm. Please join us if you are interested in our enhancing our lakes’ health. Volunteers needed.
