Find out all about rain gardens here: Rain Garden How-to Guide for Tantramar
Rain gardens are natural storm water management systems and a simple way to adapt to climate change in Tantramar. Climate change is causing more rainfall but it is falling in fewer, more intense events. Rain gardens capture runoff from roofs or parking lots, etc and let it absorb naturally into the ground, keeping it out of storm drains. They are also helpful in coastal areas, limiting erosion and filtering polluted runoff. Rain gardens are planted with native grasses and flowers and also attract bees and butterflies!
We’re looking for volunteers to help us plant rain gardens in Port Elgin, Dorchester and Memramcook in June and July. Contact Robyn Snook at (506) 536-4487 or email@example.com for more information and how to get involved.
Application deadline is Friday, April 25th, 2014. For more information check out the Summer 2014 EOS Student Job Competition.
