Reduce stormwater runoff from your property.

It helps our lakes and wetlands, and recharges groundwater.



“Native plants, which have co-evolved with native wild birds, are more likely to provide a mix of foods –

just the right size, and with just the right kind of nutrition – and just when the birds need them.”

~ Stephen Kress, National Audubon Society.



“Carrol Henderson and Lynn Steiner will share their favorite tips and tricks to a high-pleasure,

low-drudgery “green” solution for soil stabilization and stormwater control that will benefit both wildlife and water quality.”
