Roger Williams Park: Stormwater Sites and Ecosystem Approaches

Join us for a walking tour of Roger Williams Park to learn the stormwater mitigation strategies in Providence Stormwater Innovations Center's stormwater playground. From bioswales to permeable pavers, most strategies include plant material. Plant selection and maintenance are a critical part of efficient stormwater management. The Park's maintenance practices focus on an ecosystems approach that assures proper functioning of stormwater sites while also allowing for ecosystem services. This landscape study will demonstrate how these practices can be translated to community gardens and backyards.
