WRWMG and C2C Students Spruce Up Halsted Middle School Rain Garden

The Wallkill River Watershed Management Group hosted a rain garden maintenance day for Halsted Middle School students enrolled in the Choose 2 Connect (C2C) after school enrichment program in Newton. Students helped to beautify the rain garden that was installed on their school campus in summer 2019, and they learned how rain gardens help to capture polluted stormwater from the parking lot, which helps to filter and treat the water before it enters local streams.
