(Co-sponsored) Attend a Fall Lawn Clinic

Or How I Stopped Torturing My Yard and Saved the Lakes

Our lawns greened up with the rain, and fall is the time to make changes in your yard, so it's a good time to learn how to have a "smarter" lawn. For example, as we try to reduce nutrients going into our lakes, can you make a difference by using the best times to fertilize and best ways to control weeds, and making sure you aren't spreading more fertilizer than you need?  Do you have microclimates in your yard -- and how do you deal with them?  Can you make planting choices that make a lower impact (and take less money and work)?

The Durham County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Sierra Club will be having a lawn clinic.  We walk around to look at cool yards and talk about how lawn chemicals get into stormwater.  In the process, we will learn some practical things about lawn care.

    Oops, sorry. I was excited at the thought of it, but just realized my daughters soccer game is during that time. :/
    It's always something!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
