Montgomery County Conservation District Holds Homeowner Workshop
In September 2020, Montgomery County Conservation District (MCCD), Penn State Extension (Master Watershed Steward and Master Gardener programs), and Ambler Borough Environmental Advisory Council partnered to offer a free, online “Conservation and Water Pollution Prevention Workshop for Homeowners.”
The first session had 121 participants, and the second had 106 participants! Designed for a “novice” audience, the workshop covered topics including stormwater management, using rain gardens and rain barrels, stream corridor management practices, erosion and sediment control, bio-retention, lawn-to-meadow, native landscaping, proper tree planting techniques, and water conservation.
