Learn about Rain Gardens at SUNY Ulster, Stone Ridge on Saturday July 16th from 10 – 11 AM. This class is free, walkins welcome.

Rain gardens provide the following benefits:

  • Water is filtered naturally
  • Reduces water run off, lessening the risk of flooding & drainage issues
  • Increases the amount of ground water going back into the soil
  • Increased use of native plants contributing to a healthy ecosystem and wildlife habitat
  • A beautiful environment that makes people happy
