This Service Day will be in the morning to beat the heat!  Come help us  get enough accomplished to leave the rain garden in great shape until this fall/winter.

We will be continuing to stabilize the rock-lined side slopes to keep the native clay in place to avoid clogging the sandy rain garden bottom.

Bring your work gloves if you have them.  But, we also have gloves. The Umstead Coalition will provide snacks and water. 

This project is providing several environmental and user benefits, including:  reduced runoff volume and intensity of stormwater runoff (as well as treatment of sediment and nutrient pollutants) due to the infiltration into special soil media and plants installed in the medians. The trees and shrubs will provide much needed shade in the hot, steamy parking lot.  The shade will reduce the temperature of the storm water and reduce the thermal impact to the downgradiant Park streams.
