May Meeting – Water-wise Rain Gardens

We hope you will join
The Garden Club of Weaverville
for Our May 2022 Meeting – via Zoom

Tuesday, May 10th at 9:30 

Program: Soak Up the Rain – Rain Gardens!

Abundant rain combined with steep slopes means that homeowners in our region often struggle with runoff and erosion issues. Have no fear: native plants to the rescue! Join Renee Fortner for a presentation on how to design rain gardens to help manage runoff, provide wildlife habitat, and beautify your yard by taking advantage of the amazing diversity of native plants in our region.
 
Renee Fortner (M.S. Biology; Associates Degree in Horticulture) is the Watershed Resources Manager at local environmental non-profit RiverLink. As an avid river paddler, home gardener, and naturalist, Renee is continually reminded how the environment around us, and our daily lives are affected by access to clean, abundant water. Through her role at RiverLink, she works to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our water resources and leads projects that mitigate the impacts of climate change and human activities on our waterways. Renee loves sharing her passion for native plants and our mountain streams.
