BCMG November Monthly Meeting – Rain Gardens for Wildlife and Water Quality (Zoom Mtg.)

November 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

November BCMG Seminar and Meeting
November 19, 2020
6:00 – 8:00 PM

Topic:  Rain Gardens for Wildlife and Water Quality

Learn how to make the most of the rain to improve your landscape for wildlife and water quality.  Rain gardens are shallow depressions that help temporarily capture rainwater runoff from hard surfaces like rooftops and allow the water to be filtered and cleaned through plants and soils.  When plants are selected properly, these gardens can help pollinators, birds, and other wildlife.  Learn the basics of site analysis, installation, and some of the best local native plants to make your rain garden attractive as well as wildlife friendly.

Speaker:  Lee Marlowe, Restoration Ecologist

Lee Marlowe is a restoration ecologist with over 20 years of professional experience working in the field of ecological restoration and natural resource management.  Her expertise includes the use of native plants to provide wildlife habitat, water quality benefits, bank/site stabilization, and aesthetic beauty in landscapes of all sizes.

Free and open to the public.
The business portion of the meeting will begin immediately after the conclusion of the presentation.
