Celebrate Environmental Holiday Spirit
Our Neighbors in Oyster Harbor Need Lots of Volunteers to Plant a Rain Garden

Saturday, December 19
9 a.m. until done

The garden will affect runoff into Fishing Creek.

Construct a major Bioretention Cell/Swale - Rain Garden system. Phase 1 of multiple phases to restore a wetland area and mitigate storm water runoff issues destroying Fishing Creek. It's a holiday present to the Chesapeake Bay!
The cell will infiltrate 1,495 cubic feet of runoff a day, and will deal with a 1.75-inch storm, giving an infiltration runoff volume reduction of over 38%.

Move biosoil mix into excavated bioswale and biocell (didn't have enough money for contractor to do it). Lots of wheel-barrowing!
Plant of 700 native trees, shrubs, perennials, ferns, grasses.
Complete biocell diaphragm, intakes, and overflow systems.

Wear old clothes, boots, gloves, - it's messy. Bring tools, wheelbarrows, if you have them.

From Arundel on the Road heading east, turn right onto Harbor Road. Go one block and make a right onto Creek Drive. Go a block to the work site on the right at Boris home, 1262 Creek Drive.
