WSU Kitsap Master Gardeners/Rain Garden Mentors will be presenting many low-impact options for dealing with stormwater runoff, including rocked creek beds, planting options, bioswales, and many more, at an upcoming program at the Bainbridge Public Library.
The presentation is free, and is planned for 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22.
Organizers of the event said many of the suggestions are low-cost improvements, which the homeowner can do themselves with yard results that are both beautiful and functional.
The Rain Garden Mentors have helped numerous homeowners for the past 10 years through home visits, onsite assessments, and a written report of its findings and recommendations, all at no cost.
The program will be held in the library’s meeting room.
