Rainscapes — NPSOT Boerne Chapter Mtg.

January 7, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free.  The Native Plant Society of Texas-Boerne Chapter meeting begins at 6:30 PM with a native plant/seed exchange & social time, followed by the program at 7:00 PM.  For more information, go to https://npsot.org/wp/boerne/

Come learn how urban and suburban landscapes impact the health of local river systems.  Each individual home contributes a small amount to overall stormwater runoff, but the collective impact of many developments generates flash flooding, reduces water quality, and sends a deadly wall of water surging into creeks.  Rainscapes mitigate the impact of our homes on our water by mimicking predevelopment hydrology using rainwater harvesting systems including cisterns, rain gardens, and other low impact development (LID) features.

Speaker:  Shannon Brown, ecologist, certified native plant landscaper, permaculture designer, holistic management practitioner, and low-impact development construction inspector.
