Reduce Waste: Learn strategies to reduce our dependence on single-use packaging. The Portage County Recycling Center staff will provide a current status report on recycling in our county. There will also be an introduction to reducing food waste. Many of these green alternatives should also help keep some green in your pocket!
Reduce Runoff: Sandy Barbic of Summit SWCD will provide a presentation that includes a brief presentation about storm water run-off and how our landscape decisions can lead to water pollution (including harmful algal blooms). Participants will be introduced to a variety of landscape strategies such as rain barrels, rain gardens, and native tree and plant selections that will improve soil health, water quality, landscape function, and wildlife habitat while also providing a much-needed respite for the homeowner!
