Healthy Backyards Workshop is a partnership between Three Rivers Wet Weather, North Area Environmental Council and our resource conservationists. The program, titled "Healthy Lawn Care Practices," focused on how lawn care practices affect aquatic communities and considerations homeowners should make when caring for lawn areas, washing and maintaining cars, watering the lawn and fertilizing.


The Healthy Backyards Workshop , hosted at Ross Community Center, also focused on stormwater best management practices and a local parks’ efforts to improve stormwater management. Staff handed out educational materials, and ACCD provided participants with sample bags for a free soil test of their lawns to better inform their lawn care decisions.
