The Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve will be hosting a bay friendly landscaping workshop on Friday, September 22, 1:00-3:30 pm. Yard design and maintenance can have a big effect on adjacent water bodies. Participants will learn about resources to help them transform their yard into a luscious bay conscious landscape that attracts birds and wildlife. The class will also feature innovative Green Infrastructure techniques such as rain gardens, green roofs, and bio-swales. Following the discussion portion of the workshop participants will have the option, for a small fee, to assemble their own rain barrel that they can take home. The workshop will be held at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve. The class is free, but rain barrels are $20.00 per barrel.
