September 21, 2013 - 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. Rain Gardens Inspired by Native Plant Communities

Sponsored jointly by the Delaware Native Plant Society and the Bombay Hook Garden Keepers. Rain gardens are being installed all over the country but functioning and thriving examples are rare. Learn why so many plantings fail or lack the ecological and functional value they are expected to provide and take a closer look at natural plant communities and how we can learn to use them to create successful ecosystems that reduce runoff and pollution in our landscape. Speakers include Bill McAvoy, Botanist with the Delaware Natural Heritage Program, and Rob Jennings of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.


A complimentary lunch is included. The symposium is free, but registration is required and space is limited. To register, contact Quentin Schlieder at (302) 653-6449 or
