Many other activities are planned, including:
- Craft tables where children can make toad houses and little bamboo lodgings for our local solitary bees – who don’t live in hives;
- Displays and handouts about stream buffers;
- The Watershed Committee’s always-popular water table and wheel of questions; and
- Talks and handouts for adults about conservation landscaping and rain gardens that attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
Here’s what won’t be available at this event: single-use plastic water bottles. These omnipresent so-called conveniences are decidedly inconvenient for the health of our watershed and even ourselves. Please bring a reusable water bottle – or use the drinking fountain. The WatershedPalooza promises to be full of fun and learning.
Preregistration by Monday, Sept. 11, is recommended. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-531-1749.
