Free Conservation Landscaping Workshop on November 10
Posted Tuesday, October 30

Interested in reducing erosion or flooding on your property? Worried about run-off into our waterways? Wondering how using native plants in your yard could make you eligible for a reduction of your stormwater utility fee?

Join the City of Alexandria’s Stormwater Management Division, NOVA Soil and Water Conservation District, and Arlington County for “Beautiful Solutions for Stormwater Pollution,” a free workshop on conservation landscaping.

Renowned landscape designer John Magee, of Magee Design, will teach you how to use native plants to make your new landscape sustainable, functional, and beautiful. Alexandria stormwater engineers will explain how native plants and other low impact development techniques can work to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff that enters our local streams. Staff from Alexandria, Arlington, and NOVA Soil and Water will explain the different incentive programs available to residents.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about beautifying your property and protecting our waterways!
