Clark University Embraces Rain Gardens
Clark University has just announced the installation of a Rain Garden on-campus. A rain garden utilizes specific plants that allow rain water to quickly percolate down into the ground. This process then provides a place for pollutants from rain water to be filtered more efficiently. Please spread the word! The garden is in-front of the building next to the administration building for those who wish to visit the site.
