The DuPage County Stormwater Management Division will be hosting a rain barrel and native plant species sales event. The event will take place on May 30, 2009 from 8:30am to 12pm (or until products sell out) at the DuPage County Fairgrounds located at 2015 W. Manchester Road in Wheaton.
Come make your gardens and lawns truly green this summer by purchasing rain barrels and native plants. Rain barrels store stormwater runoff from rain events for future use in gardens and lawns. Native plants are hardy species with deep roots that hold water and can handle the changes in our region’s climate. They also attract many butterflies and birds.
