Upcoming Events


North Oakland Wild Ones Presentation:
Rain Gardens

WHEN: Wed, Sept 21, 7pm
WHERE: E. L. Johnson Nature Center, 3325 Franklin Rd., Bloomfield Hills
COST: Free

Are you thinking about planting a garden to help the environment?  One option to accomplish this goal is a Rain Garden.  Its’ purpose is to slow the flow of water to allow absorption and filtration.  When planted with native plants it helps sustain our native pollinators.  North Oakland Wild Ones (NOWO) is offering a program to help plan a Rain Garden.  Kaleigh Snoddy, Director of Education and Stewardship for the Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC) will speak on “Rain Gardens and Rain Barrels”.  The inclusion of rain barrels in the program is very timely considering our lack of rain.  Presentation is open to the public.
