Program highlights ways to slow the flow of rainwater
From green rooftops and permeable driveways, rain barrels and rainwater harvesting systems, through bio-swales and rain gardens to the stream banks and shorelines, there's a way to mimic what nature always did well.
The Kettle Moraine Chapter of Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes will host “Rainwater: Catch it Where it Falls and Slow the Flow,” at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, at the South Kettle Moraine State Forest headquarters, S91W39091 Wisconsin Highway 59, one mile west of Eagle.
The free program, which is open to the public, is designed to help homeowners divert, capture and recycle the rainwater that falls on their properties.
The presenter is Mike Marek, vice-president of Marek Landscaping, LLC, a Milwaukee based ecological restoration firm.
