Partners carry out successful workshop for homeowners on making sustainable backyard choices!

October 20, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The Lehigh County Conservation District, in partnership with Lehigh County Authority and Penn State Extension, carried out a free workshop for homeowners October 20, 2022 on STORMWATER SOLUTIONS.

35 residents learned how their actions impact local water resources and how they can incorporate sustainable backyard solutions to improve the water quality of our watershed.

Participants received two native tree seedlings.

Participants learn about rain barrels, rain gardens, pervious pavers, and converting lawns to meadow.

If you are interested in learning how YOU can be a part of the stormwater runoff and non-point source pollution solution, reach out our Environmental Educator, Laura Hopek, at for upcoming workshops.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
