WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Volunteers from Walmart will join Coastal Federation staff and other volunteers Friday to maintain a series of rain gardens at Bradley Creek Elementary School.
They will be pulling weeds, hauling mulch and installing native plants in the rain gardens that were installed at the school over the past three years, according to a press release.
The rain gardens project is part of Walmart’s environmental sustainability commitment.
The Coastal Federation worked with Bradley Creek Elementary School and a number of other partners to design and install a series of stormwater-reduction projects around the school, including rain gardens, bioretention areas and stormwater wetlands.
Those projects help to slow down and soak up rainwater that flows off the school’s property. They are also components of the watershed plans that the federation and the City of Wilmington are devising to identify stormwater sources and reduce runoff in Hewlett’s and Bradley creeks.
