Community members from around the area will work together to put native plants in the rain garden. Guest speakers will discuss rain garden construction, native plants, bird habitat, and rain barrels.

Cost is $10, including meals. Location: 1112 State St., Mertztown, PA. RSVP to 610-216-7976 or [email protected] Check Facebook page Longswamp Township EAC for more information.
