Celebrating Umstead State Park since 1934!
This will be part of a larger 9/11 service day project. If you have worked at this project on a past service day and can help us by being a task leader, please come early to help set-up and be assigned a task to supervise.
We will be continuing to stabilize the rock-lined side slopes by laying new, large footer rocks, an innovative side slope holder to help keep the rocks in place.
We will also be doing some weeding and maintenance.
Bring your work gloves if you have them. But, we also have gloves. The Umstead Coalition will provide lunch, 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. More details: forested rain garden
