Please plan to join us Tuesday, September 15, 2015 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Woodend Nature Sanctuary for a public meeting on a draft plan to retrofit Woodend to soak up runoff and restore Rock Creek. Invite a friend or neighbor too.
On July 22, ANS Executive Director Lisa Alexander and Conservation Director Diane Cameron hosted staff from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection and the Center for Watershed Protection on a stormwater tour of Woodend to identify candidate sites for retrofits such as rain gardens, permeable pavement and infiltration trenches.
Our goal is to capture 100 percent of our runoff on-site. We're on our way. We recently installed a native plant conservation landscape on-site and on our recommendation, the Department of Transportation installed a permeable sidewalk on Brierly Road adjacent to Woodend.
Join us for this public meeting to learn more about the proposed retrofit concepts, and other projects and to share your feedback. RSVP with Diane Cameron today.
