After the Storm: A Water Shed Event

Colonial Beach—Explore ways to protect your property from erosion due to storm water damage and beautify your landscape in environmentally friendly ways on Saturday, April 14, 2012, when Northern Neck Master Naturalists present “After the Storm: A Water Shed Event” at the Placid Bay Civic Association building in Colonial Beach (Oak Grove), VA. Admission is free.

When it rains; it drains. Where does that water go? On September 8, 2011, Lee dropped 29 inches of rain on Placid Bay in one day. Houses flooded, roads washed out, and dams failed. “After the Storm” is a response to that destruction and will

help anyone who lives in a watershed, and we all live in a watershed, understand the functions of water and soils in a watershed and prepare to avoid damage to your property when the next storm comes. We can deal with stormwater by slowing it down, spreading it out, and soaking it in.

Throughout the day from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., visitors will hear presentations from experts from Northern Neck Master Gardeners, Friends of the Rappahannock, Hull Springs Farm of Longwood College, and the Northern Neck Soil and Water Conservation District. Booths, including ones from Westmoreland State Park, Northern Neck Master Naturalists, and the Northern Neck Native Plant Society will provide answers to your questions and connections to local organizations. Visitors will get the latest information on Best Practices for stormwater management including: native plants, rain gardens, rain barrels, shoreline designs, and shoreline evaluations. Children and adults can choose a seedling to pot and take home to plant; enter the “World Beneath Our Feet” in the NNSWDC mobile van, view the newly installed rain garden; and manipulate the EnviroScape to understand how water causes erosion.

Walk with the experts at 1:30 and see how a home site is evaluated using the new Integrated Shoreline Evaluation Assistance(I-SEA) and learn how to evaluate, understand, and treat issues from the watershed to the water’s edge.
