RAIN GARDEN WORKSHOP AND PLANT DANE! COST-SHARE PROGRAM
Retain the Rain Workshop: http://www.myfairlakes.com/pdf/Plant_Dane_workshop_brochure.pdf is scheduled for Saturday, March 1, 2014, where attendees will learn how to plan for and install rain gardens to help local lakes and streams. These simple yet effective projects help rain soak into the ground instead of becoming pollution-carrying stormwater on its way to our lakes and streams. Registration is $5. Workshop deadline is Feb. 21. The workshop will also cover rain water harvesting.
The Plant Dane! Cost-Share Program, http://www.myfairlakes.com/PlantDane.aspx which provides plants at less than half of retail cost thanks to the Graham-Martin Foundation, will also be covered at the workshop for those interested in ordering plants for their gardens and yards. Forty-six of the 75 species available through the program provide butterfly habitat. Species available through program: http://www.myfairlakes.com/pdf/GMF_Species.pdf
Rain gardens are an attractive way to reduce lawn-maintenance time and costs, beautify your yard and help your lakes, rivers and streams all at the same time. Native wildflowers provide blooms from spring through fall and provide habitat for birds, butterflies and other beneficial insects.
Plant Dane! orders with full payment must be received by March 14. http://www.myfairlakes.com/plant/#/order

NON-FLUSHABLES IN THE SEWER SYSTEM
The Village of Cottage Grove along with the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) continue to find many items that should be discarded in a different manner. Many people donít realize the potential damage and expense that these products can cause to the sewer systems, pumps, treatment plant and/or environment. MMSD has developed an educational brochure for our customers. Please click here for the brochure and list of non-flushable items.
We appreciate your help. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like any further information.
