Bioswale Event Cancelled for This Year

“Where the Wild Things Are in the City” Cancelled for This Year
Posted on 10/09/2019
The family friendly event, Where the Wild Things Are in the City, originally scheduled to take place in October has been cancelled for this year due to the continuous wet weather.

Where the Wild Things Are in the City is a bioswale project funded by the TD Green Spaces Grant program, in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, and involves a storm water study in the J. Frank MacAulay Park area. As part of the project, green infrastructure, in the form of a bioswale, will be created to slow the flow of storm water in the area, allow for better infiltration of water, reduce flooding, increase biodiversity in the park and encourage the presence of wildlife. Overall, the project also improves the aesthetics of the area.

This project is expected to continue in the spring of next year and this event will be held at that time.
