Do you spend all your free time mowing your grass? Do you get frustrated at your money wasted on maintaining a green lawn?
In Pennsylvania, there are over two million acres of lawn. Maintaining a lawn takes work. It requires mowing, water, fertilizer and in the meantime, pollinators disappear and run off carries sediment and fertilizer into streams. One way to reduce your environmental footprint is to convert some or all your lawn to meadow or forest. By doing so, you help provide clean water and welcome birds and beneficial insects back to your property.
Join Danielle Rihel, the DCNR Watershed Forestry Specialist to learn how to get rid of that lawn and switch to native meadow/forest! We will meet for the first part of class indoors and then go outside to explore meadows. Meet at the Environmental Learning Center.
