The Harford County Department of Public Works will partner with several agencies to host a Rain Garden Workshop from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The focus of the workshop will be on how homeowners can create a rain garden in their backyard while understanding the function of storm water and the mechanics of a rain garden.
Topics will include: native plants, wildlife habitat, bayscaping and how each benefits our local streams. Participants can also enjoy a tour of the rain garden constructed at the library in the fall of 2010.
The workshop will also feature a status report on the Wheel Creek Restoration project, which includes water quality monitoring, stream restoration and upgrades to existing storm water management facilities.
Registration for the rain garden workshop is preferred. Visit www.hcplonline.info or call 410-638-3990 for more information.
