Group Leader: Louise Watson
The natural resources workgroup focuses on improving land, air, and water quality by promoting the adoption of rain gardens, pollinator-friendly practices, and climate change impacts on our natural world.
OUR CURRENT PROJECTS
Raingardens catch runoff from a rooftop, driveway or street and soak it into the ground before it can reach a storm sewer or nearby waterway. Raingardens also beautify our local communities and provide habitat for pollinators. Adopting a raingarden is a great way to build community, keep your neighborhood looking spiffy, protect your local lakes and rivers, and get fresh air and exercise!
STREET GUTTER SWEEP-OFF PROGRAM
We want to protect the health of our water and our river. Join-us in sweeping-up, raking-up, and picking-up items out of our street gutters and drains. We have MANY Un-Adopted Drains in Stillwater.
ASSIST POLLINATOR FRIENDLY ALLIANCE
We assist the Pollinator Friendly Alliance with Stillwater Area effort. We need volunteers to help assess the neighborhood's natural resources and backyard gardening efforts.
