At our next meeting, the Guadalupe Chapter Presents
An Adventure in Home Rain Gardening
Rain tends to be fickle in our area. Anyone who has lived here for any length of time is well aware that our South Texas climate is characterized by perpetual drought periodically interrupted by torrential rain. When it does rain, managing runoff becomes a challenge.
This presentation features a home re-landscaping project inspired by the Mission Reach Eco restoration Project of the San Antonio River and considerable training in Low Impact Design (LID) techniques from San Antonio River Authority staff. It encompasses a storm water management system of rain gardens and swales highlighted with a diverse array of native plants, creating a unique, low maintenance, sustainable wildscape.
Donald Ewers is the Texas Master Naturalist liaison to the San Antonio River Authority and a member of SARA’s Environmental Advisory Committee, as well as the vice-president of the San Antonio Chapter of NPSOT.
