Soak It Up, Break It Down: Using Native Plants to Improve Stormwater

Thursday, May 5 | 6:00 – 7:30 pm 

Learn how you can select native species that will benefit the environment beyond just providing habitat for pollinators and wildlife. In this presentation, you’ll learn about phytoremediation and how native plant species used in rain garden and bioswale projects can improve stormwater quality by removing or transforming environmental contaminants, while still providing a visually pleasing aesthetic. The presentation will be followed by a tour of the bioswale at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks
