Learn How to Construct a Bioswale
BIOSWALE WORKSHOP with KYLE KEEGAN
Saturday, April 29 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
At the Lost Coast Education Center and Garden, next to the BLM King Range fire facility, 768 Shelter Cove Road in Whitethorn.
The workshop will cover the theory, design and hands-on construction of a bioswale (also known as a berm and basin) to help capture and infiltrate runoff into the soil. Participants will learn how, where (and where not to) construct a bioswale, their uses for groundwater recharge, as well as their use in capturing nutrients and sediment.
The day of the workshop a small bioswale will be constructed and planted with native perennial bunch grasses. Participants will also receive a basic written guide on how to build a bioswale.
Bring work gloves, sturdy shoes, a notepad, water and a lunch.
