CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD OUR NEW 3D NATIVE TREE PROJECT KIT!

** YOU MUST PRINT DOUBLE-SIDED AND HAVE “FLIP ON SHORT EDGE” CHECKED. If you do not do this, the brochure will not function as intended. “Flip On Short Edge” is NOT the default option when you select double-sided printing, so be sure to turn it on before you click print. Our new brochure was originally designed to be printed on much larger paper (15.5 x 8.5). Try printing on Legal Size paper for a larger image. We suggest using an X-acto knife to cut the fine details but make sure to offer help to younger participants. **

Learn about all the projects we are doing around town and why the city is working hard to promote new stormwater management projects like these.
