Let's build a Raingarden - Sally Wenczel

Wednesday, June 21st, 2023
to (Eastern Time)
Johnson Nature Center

Public Welcome Free Event Chapter Meeting Program/Speaker Presentation Wheelchair Accessible Public Restroom Free Public Parking Drinking Fountains

Sally Wenczel is a West Bloomfield Parks and Rec Commissioner and a supporter of using native plants in urban landscapes. Through her talk, you will learn about Michigan Ecology and the use of Raingardens in your urban yard.  Sally Wenczel has installed multiple raingardens in her yard to collect and filter the rain. 

She authored a children's book "Let's Build a Rain Garden"  

Let’s Build a Rain Garden leads children into Michigan ecology through verse. They get a close up look at the fun creatures and native plants that thrive inside a rain garden while learning the more high-level terms STORMWATER and WATERSHED. The book is written for children, however adults will enjoy taking notes on the basic steps for building a rain garden as well. Be a part of the solution to stop the pollution. It all begins with YOU!
