Thursday, May 26 8:00 pm


Storms are happening more frequently and dumping more rain per event. This leads to the headache of flooding in your yard or home. Learn from Olivia Spildooren about the benefits of installing rain gardens or rain barrels on your property to reduce flooding as well as protect the health of your watershed!

Olivia Spildooren is The Watershed Institute’s River-Friendly coordinator. She is a recent graduate of Dickinson College with a BS in environmental science. She oversees five River-Friendly certification programs for residents, schools, businesses, golf courses and community partners. This program seeks to encourage better environmental education and promote hands-on stewardship of the land for the overall goal of keeping water clean, safe and drinkable for all.
