Phil Hardberger Park Urban Ecology Center Hosts Water Conservation Workshop

Water conservation is critical to the sustainable future of San Antonio and all of Texas. Learn more about rain gardens and water catchment systems from representatives from the San Antonio River Authority and SAWS on Saturday, May 16, at the Phil Hardberger Park Urban Ecology Center, 8400 NW Military Hwy.

Participants will learn how to create a rain garden using rainfall catchment techniques and about bioswales, which are sloped drainage courses used to remove pollution from surface runoff water. Families are welcome, and a kid-friendly activity will be provided. The program is presented by the Alamo Area Texas Master Naturalists, the Sierra Club, Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, and San Antonio Parks and Recreation.

Admission is free, and registration is not required; a donation of $3 per person or $5 per family is suggested. For more information, visit www.philhardbergerpark.org.
