Do you know where your rainwater goes? Learn how to manage water in your landscape from some true local experts on Tuesday, March 3, 6:30 p.m. at the UT Arboretum Auditorium in Oak Ridge, 901 S. Illinois Avenue. This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society but donations are gratefully accepted. No registration is required.

The Oak Ridge Stormwater team from the City of Oak Ridge and Dr. Andrea Ludwig from the University of Tennessee and Tennessee Smart Yards will be leading the program, “Working with Water in Your Landscape: Do You Know Where Your Rainwater Goes?” The team will answer such questions as, “What’s at the end of your downspout?” “Why mow when you can grow instead?” “What is a rain garden and what can it do for you?” The instructors will also address reducing the impact of rain water on your property. Another important subject to be discussed is rainfall runoff in the urban environment.
