West Branch Watershed Workshop

May 29 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am CDT

DuPage County Stormwater Management and The Conservation Foundation are hosting a FREE breakfast workshop in your watershed. This workshop aims to connect like-minded organizations and individuals who are concerned with protecting local streams and rivers. During the workshop, attendees will learn about the management of Ball Creek and the award winning sustainable landscape at Ball Horticultural Company’s headquarters. We will also be raffling off a rain barrel thanks to the generosity of Bedrock Earthscapes, LLC.
