CREATE A RAIN GARDEN - MAUMELLE AR
LAKE VALENCIA - MAY 23
LAKE WILLASTEIN - MAY 24
4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Bring work gloves, wear boots, and learn how to plant a beautiful rain garden on May 23 and 24 at Lake Valencia and Lake Willastein in Maumelle, Arkansas. A rain garden is a special type of garden that is made to catch and hold rain water that runs off from places like roofs, driveways, or lawns. It's built in a small area that's lower than the surrounding ground and is usually on a hill. The garden is filled with plants that are native to the area, like shrubs and flowers, which help soak up the water. This helps keep the water from flooding and polluting nearby areas like rivers and lakes. For more information contact Greg Phillips at 501-847-7077 or email Greg at email@example.com.

PUBLIC WETLANDS PARK
