Backyard Stream Repair

Thursday, March 15, Noon
Ciener Botanical Garden, 215 S. Main St. Kernersville

Join us at Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden, for “Backyard Stream Repair”, by Wendi Hartup, the stormwater manager for the Town of Kernersville. As part of Forsyth Creek Week this lecture will help kick off the county-wide event with small-scale solutions to eroding streambanks. Learn what types of beautiful native plants will stabilize the banks as well as create a shoreline garden!  Licensed landscapers can earn one hour of professional development credit from the N.C. Landscape Contractors Licensing Board. 

Bring your lunch.  The garden will provide drinks.  Lunch and Learn is FREE to members of Ciener Botanical Garden or a $2 donation for non-members.  Registration is required.  For more information and to register online, visit
