Learn more about rain gardens

Researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, under the direction of Professor Thomas Franti, an expert in stormwater management, have produced video vignettes explaining the various steps involved in creating a rain garden at home. They are an excellent source of information!

The videos were translated by the OBV Matapédia-Restigouche who used them for a rain garden project in its watershed. See the project. 

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and the OBV Matapédia-Restigouche have allowed the Friends of  Les Amis du bassin versant du lac Waterloo to use the video vignettes for our rain garden project. We thank them very much!


Enjoy! And don’t forget that we are here to support you technically and financially in your project. Contact us!
