Rain Garden Program set


The Big Walnut Nature Club is teaming up with Coldwater Consulting to offer a FREE rain garden program at 2 p.m., June 20 at 46 West Columbus Street in Galena.

Coldwater Consulting will explain how you can harness the storm water from your roof, driveway or sidewalk to water flower gardens and improve the water quality of our local streams. You’ll learn where to locate your rain garden; how to build it; which plants work best; and, how to maintain a rain garden.

The Big Walnut Nature Club focuses on conservation and education. The group’s next meeting is June 18, at 7 p.m., at the Ruffner Park Shelter House, 170 Harrison Street in Galena (or in case of bad weather, at the Galena Village Hall, 109 Harrison Street).
