Landscaping for Clean Water Workshops

Burnsville is pleased to be a part of the Landscaping for Clean Water program - a workshop series for residents to learn about rain gardens, shoreline restorations and native gardens. Attend this FREE workshop to learn how to design, install and maintain a project in your very own yard.

These projects are beautiful ways to landscape and also positively impact water quality in your neighborhood.

Workshops are taught by experts from the Dakota County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and are open to all Dakota County residents.
