Did you know? The rain gardens on the George Watts playground protect downhill areas of the neighborhood, including Ellerbe Creek, by preventing soil erosion during rainstorms, and slowing and filtering runoff. They are also beautiful, making a great gathering spot in late afternoons and evenings, weekends, and summertime.

The July 17 workshop will be led by the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association, in partnership with Trinity Park Neighborhood Association and the George Watts PTA, with help from a Duke Doing Good grant through the Duke Durham Neighborhood Partnership program.  For more information contact ECWA’s Robert Meehan (robert@ellerbecreek.org) or Sarah Musser, George Watts PTA Grounds Committee Chair (Sarah.musser@duke.edu).
