In partnership with the City of Kalamazoo, we recently received a Climate Change grant from Freshwater Future to launch a rain barrel campaign to raise awareness about stormwater runoff and water conservation. In the face of a changing climate, it is more important than ever to start managing runoff as a resource, consider everyday things we can do to control runoff and flooding, and continue to conserve water.
