Also enjoy LOWA's Project Manager, Caroline Toole, sum up LOWA's year and their exciting Green$ for Greenery cost share landscaping program its all about reducing the amount of stormwater runoff reaching the lake and keeping our beautiful lake beautiful and healthy! For more information call Mary Jo Doores at 573-280-2296.
Green$ for Greenery LOWA's cost share incentive program for landscaping projects that help to keep our Lake healthy by reducing the amount of stormwater runoff reaching the lake will be the main topic for LOWA's September public meeting.
LOWA LILs: LILs are Low Impact Landscapes like rain gardens and terraced gardens designed to catch runoff in the yards, rain barrels that catch the rainwater from the gutters, pervious pavements that let the rain soak through rather than running off, and vegetated buffer strips along the water or property line that help slow and filter the stormwater runoff are all examples of LOWA LILs low impact landscaping measures that help to slow down the stormwater runoff and give that runoff a chance to soak into the ground or be filtered by plants before that stormwater and all its contaminants reaches the Lake.
LOWA's cost share program works like this: The cooperating landscape company donates 10% off the top of the total qualifying bill; LOWA's grant kicks in 40% of the total qualifying bill; and that leaves the property owner with only half of the bill to pay. Are you a do-it-yourselfer? Show us your plans and we can help you reduce your costs of materials and equipment. This offer will be good through 2012.
Everyone is invited and it is free to all. Kayaks will be available for those of you who want to try it out. We think you'll love it and want to join in on the sport.
Come join us for a morning of kayaks and canoes at LOWA's Kayak Meet Up, October 13, 2012 at 9 am until noon at the Ha Ha Tonka Spring shelter house.
