Guided tours: Eco-friendly driveway and parking lot

Original post made by Katie Pilat on Mar 14, 2007

Want to make your driveway or parking areas more eco-friendly? Join the San Francisquito Watershed Council for a free guided tour of two demonstration sites that might give you some ideas! Runoff from driveways, parking lots, and streets causes pollution and erosion in local creeks. These sites showcase permeable materials and techniques that direct rainfall to areas where it can soak into the ground. More info at Web Link.

DATES:
Sat March 24 (10am – 12noon) OR
Sun March 25 (1 – 3pm)

LOCATION: Meet at 735 Homer Avenue, Palo Alto

Tour covers two sites – (1) 735 Homer, Palo Alto, and (2) public parking lot, between Santa Cruz and Menlo Ave at Crane St, Menlo Park. Transportation required between sites (2.5 miles).

RSVP: Katie Pilat 650-961-1035 x305, Katie@SanFrancisquito.org

Presented by: San Francisquito Watershed Council
