Our Water: Upstream & Downstream
Sponsored by the Groton Public Library & Avalonia Land Conservancy
The Groton Public Library and Avalonia Land Conservancy will present a series of programs about our local brooks, rivers, and Long Island Sound at the Library during April. As WE ALL LIVE DOWNSTREAM, plan to join us to learn more about the quality of our water and how it impacts both marine animals and us! Join us Tuesday, April 30 at 7pm at the Library for the third program:
COASTAL SHORELINES:WHAT TO PLANT and WHERE
Juliana Barrett, an Associate Extension Educator with CT Sea Grant at Avery Point, will illustrate the importance of coastal vegetative corridors and their significance in reducing the impacts of waves and storm surges. Her presentation will identify which salt spray tolerant native plants are most appropriate to plant in order to reduce the impact of runoff into Long Island Sound.
