Home Newsroom 52. House Talk: “The Homeowner & the Water Supply”

Citizens for Conservation is hosting a series of Saturday morning winter programs to offer suggestions for simple ways we can maintain our yards and homes in a more earth-friendly manner. This month’s presentation called “The Homeowner and the Water Cycle” is coming up at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 22nd. There may be snow falling today, but on Saturday, you will learn how to deal successfully with rainwater on your property and help protect the Barrington-area water supply.

This session of Citizens for Conservation’s Community Education Habitat Corridors series will feature Kurt O. Thomsen, Ph D., president/hydrogeologist of KOT Environmental Consulting, Inc., and coordinator of the Flint Creek Watershed Partnership.
