THIS SATURDAY! June 28th
Soak up the Rain Great Bay Kick Off
Great Bay Discovery Center, 89 Depot Rd., Greenland, NH
Come join the Great Bay Stewards and NHDES as the kickoff an exciting new project – Soak up the Rain Great Bay! Stormwater runoff from private homes is a large source of nitrogen pollution to the estuary and the Soak Up the Rain Great Bay
program can help to reduce it. The Stewards will reach out to
private landowners and small businesses in the 1,023 square-mile Great Bay watershed, trained staff from the Stewards will respond to requests from homeowners and businesses to visit properties and recommend ways to reduce stormwater pollution.
Some properties may be ideal candidates to use rain barrels, build rain gardens or install other practices to absorb stormwater and literally soak up the rain. The Stewards and NHDES are able to provide design details, coordinate the installation, and share in the cost.
Join in kicking off this exciting new program! Saturday’s event
will include information on everything from rain garden friendly plants to recommendations on good housekeeping practices, such as testing soils to know much lawn fertilizer to use. The program will conclude with a visit to recently installed rain garden.
