The Lake Hopatcong Foundation, in partnership with the Lake Hopatcong Commission and Rutgers Cooperative Extention, is excited to announce a FREE rain garden workshop program for the Lake Hopatcong Watershed. The program is made possible through NJDEP HAB Grant Funding,
This FREE program is open to residents of Jefferson, Hopatcong, Mount Arlington, and Roxbury who reside in the Lake Hopatcong Watershed to learn the basics of rain garden installation and design a rain garden with the opportunity to receive a rebate of up to $450.
At the workshop, presented twice on Thursday, June 4, attendees will be offered the opportunity to sign up for a FREE follow-up rain garden design sessions with Rutgers landscape professionals. With detailed guidance in hand, rebates may be awarded to participating residents who install a rain garden or shoreline buffer designed by Rutgers on their property.
Our goal for this program is to install at least sixteen (16) gardens within our watershed over the next two years to help improve the lake’s water quality.
