Upcoming Events

Saturday, November 16, 2 - 5 pm

 

Need Help with Stormwater in your Yard or House?
Come to the 2019 FoCJC RainScapes Workshop on November 16
RSVP Now to get a Virtual Site Assessment!

Does your yard turn into a pond when it rains?  Does a rainstorm create a stream that runs along your property, washing away soil and mulch?  Is snowmelt seeping into your basement?  You can get help finding solutions for your stormwater problems, while at the same time protecting the environment. 
Join Friends of Cabin John Creek and Montgomery County’s RainScapes Program at a community event to find out more.

RainScapes Stormwater Management Community Meeting
Saturday, November 16, 2019
2:00 – 5:00 pm
Clara Barton Community Center
7425 MacArthur Blvd., Cabin John
RSVP:  tina@cabinjohncreek.org

At the meeting, you will hear about the techniques that you can use to manage stormwater, as well as the process to qualify for a RainScapes Rewards rebate to cover part of the cost of a management project. 
You’ll also learn how what you do on your property can help protect the environment, including the Cabin John Creek Watershed, the Potomac River, and the Chesapeake Bay. 
In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with RainScapes Program staff and receive a free virtual site assessment if you RSVP by Thursday, 11/13 and get specific recommendations for improving your property.   Or you can even bring photos of stormwater issues of your property to discuss.

One more thing...

Before you attend the Community Meeting, we ask you to help us customize the meeting to your needs.  We invite you to take our short anonymous survey about stormwater issues, and we’ll use your responses to focus on the problems you face.  So, please take our 5-Minute Survey, and we hope to see you at the community meeting on November 16!
