Another rain garden has been added to Schuylkill Banks near Paine's Park. This garden helps control erosion, manage stormwater, create wildlife habitat, and looks good doing it!
Many thanks to the project sponsors:
• Coastal Zone Management Program (NOAA, PA DEP and PA Coastal Resources Management) • Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area • Schuylkill Action Network • Philadelphia Water Department • PECO
