Landscaping by the Water’s Edge

Infiltration stepsThe Lake Winnipesaukee Association (LWA) in partnership with the Moultonborough Conservation Commission are hosting a free program on landscaping practices that help protect and improve water quality on Tuesday, August 9th.  The program will be held from 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the Moultonborough Public Safety Building, Route 25, Moultonborough, NH.

UNH Cooperative Extension’s “Landscaping at the Water’s Edge” program will be presented by Cathy Neal who will provide an introduction to landscape strategies for protecting and improving water quality. In addition to discussing fertilizer and landscaping chemical use, the program will also focus on control of our stormwater – “Slow it Down, Spread it out, and Soak it in!”  Vegetated areas such as buffers and rain gardens are meant to enhance filtration through soils and plants that absorb water and filter out contaminants.  With practices suitable for every residential property, you will see that you can make a difference and still have attractive landscapes that serve an important pollution-prevention function in your watershed.  A brief review of the Moultonborough Bay Inlet Watershed Restoration Plan project will also be presented by the Lake Winnipesaukee Association.

There is no cost to attend the program; however, pre-registration is requested and can be done through the Lake Winnipesaukee Association’s website;  or at
