River Friendly Landscaping: The Basics- a talk given by Aimee Petras.
Over 600,000 people in the Greater Hartford area and Farmington Valley receive their water from the Farmington River each year. Protecting water quality in the Farmington River is in the region’s best interest and it starts in our backyard. Aimee’s presentation will highlight things we can do to improve the health of our lawn and help protect the drinking water and ecological diversity provided by the Farmington River.

Aimee returned in January 2005 from Morocco where she was working as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Environment/Agriculture Program.
