On June 1st, Milton Garden Club in conjunction with the Neponset River Watershed Association, hosted a presentation at Fuller Village entitled: Revealing the Neponset River. The program was open to anyone interested in the history of this great River and what we can do to keep it clean for our children’s future. The Milton Garden Club won a prestigious award from the Garden Club of America for the video, it is part of the fourth grade curriculum in the elementary schools fourth grade classes. The program introduces students to the the Neponset River, including its history, geography, and wildlife and the role we all play as stewards of these natural resources.
Ian Cooke, Director of NepRWA spoke after a narrated video featuring the history of the Neponset River. Ian updated us on the status of the River since the organization was founded 50 years ago and he outlined some of the remaining challenges facing us as we move forward. Click on our Committee tab and go to the Conservation tab and you will find instructions on building a rain garden, a fantastic way to prevent water pollution. Rain gardens prevent polluted stormwater runoff from reaching local waterways. Visit the rain garden at the Trailside Museum and did you know there is a rain garden at the Milton Library? Check out the strip that bisects the parking lot!
