Mitigating wet lawns & storm water runoff

Plant Drive

As part of the Foundation's Plants, Not Puddles program, we invite you to take advantage of discounts on plants offered by Ingleside Nurseries in support of the program. Participating is easy; just use the button below to download the order form and follow the instructions. Discounts are valid through the month of September.

In August, the Foundation sponsored a Plants, Not Puddles workshop. During the workshop, the Town presented options and resources for managing runoff. One of those option is plantings. Download the PowerPoint or PDF version of the workshop to learn more.

We beg your pardon as we revise our website...

Last year, we moved our website to a new platform and revised its design and content. However, we are not quite finished. Our Board is updating policies and our host platform is fine-tuning its functionality. So, you will see a few areas here and there that are still "under construction." Please check back with us often as we complete those areas and add others.
