Want to be a better watershed steward? Learn the essentials of onsite storm water management from conception to construction! The FREE workshop offers a comprehensive overview of Low Impact Design (LID), and how to incorporate this form of landscaping on your own property. LID uses nature as a model for managing rainfall with runoff prevention and mitigation strategies, as well as treatment controls to remove pollutants. The workshop will be hosted by Redwood Heights Recreation Center and led by Oakland Rain Barrel Program contracted partners: The Watershed Project, ESA, PWA and DIG Cooperative Inc. Participants will leave this workshop equipped with knowledge to begin planning their own rain garden/ earthworks system or rainwater catchment project. We are holding this educational event to expand LID and rainwater harvesting throughout the city and to support residents and organizations in Oakland in watershed stewardship. To learn more about rainwater harvesting with barrels and gardens and further information about the Oakland Rain Barrel Program, visit the city web page: www.oaklandcreeks.org.
