Student interns from the Penn State Agriculture and Environment Center will host a free workshop for homeowners from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24 at the American Philatelic Society, 100 Match Factory Place, Bellefonte, PA near Big Spring Spirits. The event is free and refreshments will be provided.
Attendees will learn about storm-water runoff and how to implement simple practices on their own properties to better manage runoff while cultivating their yards. Landscaping with native plants will be emphasized, and practices like rain gardens, rain barrels, native meadows, and riparian buffers will be discussed.
All attendees will receive a free Homeowner’s Guide to Stormwater and learn how to use the guide to develop a plan for their own land.
The workshop is co-sponsored by Borough of Bellefonte, Penn State Sustainability Institute, Clearwater Conservancy, Spring Creek Trout Unlimited, Spring Creek Watershed Commission, and the American Philatelic Society.
