A Landscaping for Clean Water Workshop will be held at the Apple Valley Municipal Center at 7100 147th St W at 6:00 PM on March 13th. Come join us to see examples of beautiful gardens that help local water quality and provide pollinator and bird habitat.
Registration is free and required. If you can't make it on the 13th, no worries, more opportunities to attend are available this spring in Apple Valley and throughout the County.
Landscaping for Clean Water is an education program of the Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) offered in conjunction with Dakota County, local watershed organizations, and Dakota County cities that seeks to encourage installation of native plant gardens, raingardens, and native plant shoreline stabilizations on Dakota County properties for their water quality benefits. The SWCD will go over additional resources available to help property owners install these powerhouse gardens, including grants, briefly at the end of the workshop.
