Upcoming water-related events from the MCWD's partners:


Building Sustainable Lawns for a Better Earth
Wednesday, April 22, 2015 | 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

"Join us on Earth Day as we discuss design aesthetics and ask the question...do we really need so much turf? In many cases, the answer is no. But, of course there are times and places where the answer is yes. So, how can we manage those areas in a way that reduces inputs, and provides some other benefits beyond a "green carpet" to walk on."
