Come join us and Scott Woodbury, Curator, Whitmire Wildflower Garden, Shaw Nature Reserve for the first in the 2015 Experiential Rainscaping Workshop Series, "Rainscaping: Designing for Easier Maintenance." This hands-on classroom workshop will offer those that attend a chance to gain knowledge that they can apply to their own property and rainscaping projects at home. It will be held at Mary Institute and Country Day School (MICDS) in Room 202A in the new McDonnell Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Facility on Wednesday, February 25th.

Rainscaping practices can include features such as rain gardens, bioswales, trees and shrubs, etc. to slow down, soak up and reuse rainwater before it carries pollutants to a local stream. Rainscaping can also be employed to solve a drainage problem, increase aesthetic appeal, improve property values, and/or attract birds and butterflies, in addition to other benefits.
