Join Julia Bunn, volunteer member of the Evanston Environmental Association and owner of the Spirited Garden, to learn how to make your own rain garden by following 3 simple principles.

Keeping water out of storm water drainage systems and allowing it to naturally infiltrate back into the soil is essential to maintaining our infrastructures as well as protecting our communities and Nature. This is becoming increasingly important as we understand that extreme weather events such as heavy rains are going to become more frequent in our area due to climate change (more here). It is also part of the Green Infrastructure measures promoting Climate Resilience proposed by our city's Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP)

Join us to learn more on how to prevent the negative effects of heavy rains on our homes, school grounds, churches and common spaces by applying 3 simple principles that will, in turn, promote the creation of beautiful and much needed native habitats.

The event was not recorded but you can access Julia Bunn's presentation for the event here.
