Stormwater gardens improve water quality, reduce flooding, provide native habitat and beautify urban areas
On the morning before Superstorm Sandy made landfall last year, an intrepid group of Young Professionals and volunteers planted a native species stormwater garden in the Bridgeport community of Seaside Village.
The garden survived the storm and is doing a great job reducing localized flooding, providing native habitat and filtering pollutant runoff before it enters Long Island Sound. But it needs a touch-up!
Join us on Saturday, October 26, for two hours of garden clean-up and planting of new native species. You’ll be making a real difference in quality of life for a deserving urban community.
Please RSVP to [masked] by Wednesday, October 23, if you can join us for this fun project. Bring water and work gloves, if you have them.
