Rain Garden Workday at Smyrna Elementary
August 14 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Join the North Carolina Coastal Federation in cleaning and weeding a school rain garden at Smyrna Elementary before students begin classes.
The rain garden serves as a way to reduce stormwater runoff that pollutes the nearby creeks and waterways, while also serving as a living classroom to promote outdoor education. The garden was built with students and project partners in 2008.
During the workday, volunteers will be removing invasive plants and debris, pulling weeds and spreading mulch to promote the functionality of the gardens.
Please meet at Smyrna Elementary School on Wednesday, August 14 at 9:30 a.m. and remember to:
– Wear closed-toe shoes that can get wet and muddy
– Wear clothes that can get dirty
– Wear/bring sun protection
– Bring a rain coat if rain is forecast (we will work in light rain)
– Bring a water bottle
– Bring any medications that you normally take
– Water and snacks will be supplied
– Gloves and tools will be supplied, but you are welcome to bring your own.
