Making rain gardens

 

BWA has been busy creating rain gardens, with help from a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant and many volunteers -- including Pat Bixler's Environmental Studies class at work, left, planting a rain garden  at East Stroudsburg High School South.

Green Infrastructure project

Let's clean up the Brodhead

BWA battles fecal coliform in local creeks

 

Brodhead Watershed Association has proof of bacteria and pollution in the Brodhead, Pocono and McMichael creeks in Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg and Stroud Township from a study done in the summer of 2014. Condensing all that data into a campaign for the public, BWA says: “Please don’t feed the ducks.”

 

To capture attention where waterfowl are most likely to be fed, 12 signs — four in each municipality — have been placed on the banks of the creeks.
