Lowcountry Lecture: Re-Thinking the Urban Watershed
May 21 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Kim Morganello, Clemson University Cooperative Extension
Resilient landscapes that are also aesthetically pleasing and sustainable are becoming increasingly popular in South Carolina communities. Rain gardens, rainwater harvesting systems, vegetative buffers, shorescapes and other features work to assist residents with erosion control, manage stormwater runoff, conserve water and provide habitat for pollinators and songbirds. An overview of design considerations, including native plant selection, will be provided for a number of these landscape-level best management practices. This lecture will also highlight available resources and tools to assist with implementation in the home landscape.
