Manage Rain Where it Falls

Our climate is changing, and we are experiencing warmer, wetter and wilder weather. There are things we can do to better prepare ourselves for unpredictable rainstorms and risk of flooding to increase our resiliency.

Join Sasha Benevides, Community Outreach Coordinator, Conservation Halton to learn about how nature-based solutions, also known as Low Impact Development (LID), can help. Sasha will highlight how you can work with nature to manage rain on your property through rain barrels, rain gardens, native plants, downspout disconnection, permeable pavement and more. 

Hosted by Burlington Sustainable Development Advisory Committee and City of Burlington.
