From Harford County government:
Harford County Department of Public Works in partnership with Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the University of Maryland –Master Gardener’s and the Harford County Library will hold a Rain Garden Workshop at Abingdon Library, Saturday, September 25 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Registration is required. For more information, visit www.hcplonline.info orcall 410-638-3990.
The focus of the workshop will be on how homeowners can create a rain garden in their own backyard. Topics include native plants, wildlife habitat, and “bayscaping” and how each benefits our local streams. A rain garden will be constructed at the library this fall where volunteers will have the opportunity to help plant perennials. Also featured in the workshop will be a status report on the Wheel Creek Restoration project which includes water quality monitoring, stream restoration, and upgrades to existing stormwater management facilities. For more information about the Wheel Creek Restoration project, contact Christine Buckley at (410) 638-3545 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
