Coastal Cleanup 2019 in Seaford

Cambridge Rain Garden Tour – October 23


– Do you have issues with standing water on your property?

– Are there areas of your yard that are washing out?

– Do you want to learn how to be environmentally-friendly?


On Wednesday, October 23 at 5 pm, join the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance and our partners as we tour Cambridge on foot to show you all the river-friendly projects we are helping residents install on their property. 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.



Join the community of residents that are interested in making Cambridge a more healthy and vibrant river town! 




We hope to see you there!
