BELFAST — All of Belfast Climate Dialogues project of the Belfast Free Library will host Rebecca Jacobs, program manager from the Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District, for a Zoom presentation, “Rain Gardens and Other Water Management Techniques for Your Property,” on Thursday, Feb. 2, at 6 p.m.

For those who have excess water on their property following a rainstorm, a rain garden could be an effective and attractive solution for helping to direct and infiltrate the runoff or pooling. Learn the ins and outs of properly installing a rain garden as well as other water management techniques.

ABCD’s Community Climate Conversation event Oct. 18, 2022, on “Creating Resilience to Big Storms and Flooding” attracted an engaged audience of 40 people. Attendees were energized by brainstorming actions the community could take together, particularly the idea of creating a rain garden in a public location in Belfast and using it as an educational model.
