To the Raingardens in Delta
Rain-water run-off enters Mill Lake and local creeks through catch basins and culverts. This water may contain, for example, brake and tire dust, road salt, excess fertilizers and pesticides, cigarette butts, plastic and paper litter. A rain garden absorbs this runoff instead. Interested in seeing some rain gardens examples. Join us on March 22nd.
We will need at 10:30am at Cravings coffee shop at the corner of 112 Street and 84 Ave in North Delta. There is plenty of mini-mall parking and of course coffee, tea, washrooms, at Cravings. We will leave at 11:00am for a walking loop-tour of several “Social Heart” rain gardens in the area from 112 to 115 Street and 84 to 83 Ave. This takes about 1.5 hours, depending on level of interest and speed of walking. If desired, we can drive a few blocks to North Delta’s largest school rain garden, McCloskey-Hydro, on 80 Ave at 114 Street. It is also feasible to walk there as part of the loop-tour, depending on what the group.
