Please join us for this free field tour to learn about the importance of
low impact development (LID) at private residences, and ideas you can
implement at your own home. The morning will begin with a
brief overview of different types of LID practices. This will be
followed by a more in-depth talk on rain gardens by Katie
Teague with the Washington County Cooperative Extension, and then a talk
on how to DIY your own rain barrel. These morning presentations will be
followed by lunch (included) and a field tour of multiple
local residences with LID practices installed. As a bonus, Casey Dunigan
with the Washington County Conservation District will also discuss
proper fertilizer and pesticide use. Please contact Stephanie Burchfield at email@example.com or call 479-215-6623 for more information.
