Bioswale in bloom
The bioswale project at Lot 12 (and its sister site at iBio) is thriving – and doing its job. While reducing the amount of run-off that goes into the storm drain, filtering that water and letting it percolate, the abundant native plants are also supporting wildlife (even a pheasant!) and sequestering carbon. Stop by to listen to the lively insect orchestra, enjoy the monarchs as they fuel up for migration, or flush a flock of sparrows and a goldfinch or two - feeding on seeds. Take a walk on the wild side of Wayne!
Planting of the bioswale shown here was featured on page 7 of the 2018 issue of BioRhythms. For more pictures and information, visit the Warrior Wildlife blog.
