Support Our Water Conservation Education Complex
A NYS Green Innovation Grant Project
"Picture winding meadow paths that connect fascinating technology demonstrations beginning with the very pavement you park on."
Work your way from the permeable pavement to the green roof and outdoor interactive exhibits.
Next, stroll beside lushly vegetated bioretention bays down to an engineered wetland that purifies storm water before returning it to the ground.
Crunch on an apple from the food forest on your way back up to the interpretive center for more displays on how rain water is captured from the roof and used to water plants, clean tools, and even flush our toilets!
We still have about $40,000 to go to completely fund this project's matching requirements.
Businesses and Foundations who provide substantial support will be recognized on related signage, during press events, on our website, and in our newsletter.
Types of support include:
* Financial Sponsorship
* Donating Materials
* Individual Donations
If you would like to sign-on to this project and help make it a reality, please contact our executive director, Christopher Audette at firstname.lastname@example.org
Waterman's innovative Water Conservation Park will not only demonstrate sustainable practices for homeowners and businesses, but aims to nearly eliminate runoff from our property.
Less runoff reduces stress on public ditches and drains, alleviates pollution in the Susquehanna, and helps prevent future flooding.
Wetland and forest plantings will capture carbon and promote a more sustainable tomorrow. Pumping less well water reduces energy usage.
Drastically improve infrastructure and operations at an organization who has faithfully served the public for more than 44 years!
