20jul3:00 pm4:30 pmRed Oak Rain Garden 2.0 — planning meeting #2

Event Details

You’re invited to a series of two facilitated meetings seeking input from stakeholders about the Red Oak Rain Garden.

Red Oak Rain Garden was installed 10 years ago as part of Tony Endress’ NRES classes. As of this year, the Extension Master Gardeners and Master Naturalists have an agreement in place with F&S Grounds to volunteer with the garden. Although the garden still performs well keeping water off of the pedestrian sidewalk, approximately 90% of the original plantings did not survive. We are working on a renovation plan that will enhance its aesthetics and multi-functionality. But, how exactly does the space function presently? What would be ideal?

This is where you come in. As either a campus neighbor, student, volunteer, and/or stormwater-related professional, we seek your input that will inform the garden plan.

Meeting 2: July 20 (Thu) 3 – 4:30 PM ACES Library, Heritage Rm. Agenda: Present refined design options based on feedback from Meeting 1 and seek preferences.

IWRC intern/MLA Candidate Cameron Letterly will lead the sessions along with a facilitator to guide discussion.
