As demonstration projects to show residents examples of Green Infrastructures, in May 2021 GREC installed a RAIN GARDEN at the entrance of the Glen Rock pool.
To pay for this project GREC had received a $1,500 grant from ANJEC.
Plants included: Black-eyed Susan, Asclepias tuberosa, Mountain mint, Joe Pye weed, Dwarf Goldenrod, and Clethra.
WHAT IS A RAIN GARDEN?
What are the BENEFITS of a rain garden?
What is a Rain Barrel?
It is another example of green infrastructure to capture rain water and prevent it from reaching the stormwater system as runoff.
As demos, the Glen Rock Arboretum has set up two RAIN BARRELS that capture water from the roof of the tool shed and the roof of the recently built Environmental Education center.
