LAD Foundation Grant

Project Completed Summer 2011

5. LAD Foundatin GrantThe Leo A. Drey Foundation (LAD) awarded the Watershed Committee a $5,000 grant for the entrance walkway and rain garden at the C.W. Titus Education Facility at the Watershed Center. The walkway will be constructed of recycled or sustainably grown and harvested materials, and the rain garden will provide an attractive natural amenity while slowing and filtering runoff from the building area.

Springfield Plateau Chapter Master Naturalists helped plant the rain garden and Smiling Sun Landscaping donated labor and plants.
