Rain Gardens for Wildlife and Water Quality – NPSOT Boerne Chapter Mtg.

November 2, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

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 is a restoration ecologist with over 20 years of professional experience working in ecological restoration and natural resources management.  She currently serves as the Sustainable Landscape Ecologist for the San Antonio River Authority and President of the San Antonio Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas.  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.
