Wanted to make sure that folks are aware of this upcoming opportunity to
see first-hand how you can remake your yard to be rainwater-friendly. 
I went on the guided tour last year and it was absolutely fascinating!

barrels, pervious pavement and green roof technology to increase the
health of your watershed. See examples throughout the Marcy-Holmes

Having recently installed a rain barrel and started a small rain garden in
my yard, I can say for certain this is worth the work (and it's really not
that much work), whether you apply for a stormwater fee rebate or not.

I'm looking forward now to getting additional garden ideas so I can start
thinking expansion and also learning more about pervious paving so I can
make sure to use that when I eventually replace my crumbling front walk.
