July 15: Green Infrastructure Tour & Picnic with RU Cooperative Extension!
July 15 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join 6 others!
Join the LRWP and Middlesex County Water Resources Association on July 15 for a picnic and tour of green infrastructure and detention basins in Middlesex County with Rutgers County Extension Agent Michele Bakacs and Rutgers Doctoral Student and plant expert Kate Douthat.
We will gather promptly at 10 AM in Middlesex County’s Thompson Park (Monroe Township) to learn about the lake buffer restoration at that site. More information on this project is available on the Freehold Soil Conservation District project webpage. This area is also part of the Watershed Protection and Restoration Plan for the Manalapan Brook Watershed one of the southernmost sub-watersheds in the Lower Raritan watershed.
We will then travel by van and car to tour detention basin retrofits for improved stormwater capture, return to Thompson Park for a group picnic, and those who wish to can continue on to visit the rain garden at the Spotswood Middle School.
Space limited, RSVP required.
