SECOND SATURDAY SEMINAR

Water Issues in Our Landscapes, Gardens, and Parks

Saturday • August 13 • 10:30am–12pm

Learn all about water and flooding issues in South Florida in this seminar presented by UF IFAS Miami Dade Urban Horticulture Program.

Along with Sea Level Rise, increased rainfall events coupled with paved and non-porous surfaces challenge our daily lives and pose additional threats to our South Florida environment. This seminar will look at increasing rainfall trends and explore solutions already in play around the world from China’s Sponge Cities to our own Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Bioswale Remediation grant funded project at Arcola Lakes Park. We will also look at the plants that will work in our environment to soak up excess rainfall.

 

Class is free – please RSVP:
