Watch Party Time!  
October 2022 - Maintaining Stormwater Projects

This month gather your green team and/or other members of your congregation for a Watch Party! 

In this Learning Lab you will learn:

How do you keep your in-the-ground project alive and functioning?
How do you develop a maintenance plan?
What are the necessary tasks for different types of projects?
What strategies are effective for recruiting and scheduling volunteers to do the maintenance? 

The guest speakers are Ted Wolfe from Howard EcoWorks and John Marra of Blue Water Baltimore, who share their expertise in how to keep projects vibrant and effectively healing the local waters. 

Three congregations share about how they are implementing their maintenance plans. 

Suggested Discussion Questions for your Watch Party group discussion:

  1. What lessons did you learn from the speakers about how to maintain your project?
  2. What did the congregation example show of "pitfalls to avoid"? 
  3. How did they organize volunteers to engage in maintenance activities?

How to organize your Watch Party: Invite people to a Watch Party discussion together about "Maintaining Stormwater Projects" on Oct. 6. (If that date doesn't work for you please schedule your webinar discussion at another time during October.)
