Drake University Biocell Plant Installation
October 23, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Come to Drake University on October 20th, 10am-3pm, to help plant native plants in a bioretention cell! We have 1100 galloon sized plants that need to go in the ground. Stop by as time allows.
A bioretention cell reduces flooding and improves the quality of water that runs off of our campus. Wear shoes and clothes you are comfortable getting planting native flowers in. Snacks and drinks will be provided by DEAL and SAA while supplies last.
Installation site is in right outside of Harvey Ingham Hall, 2804 Forest Avenue. Parking is available on Forest Avenue.
This project is a student led initiative and is funded by the generous support of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and the City of Des Moines.
