Soak it all in

1. Reduce water runoff from your property by installing rain barrels and re-directing the flow into your gardens. You can also use porous surfaces for walkways, patios and driveways.
2. Participate in “No Mow May!” Letting your grass grow a little longer not only benefits native pollinators, it can also help reduce water runoff.
3. Plant some native wetland or water-loving plants around the overflow from your rain barrel or where your downspouts exit.
4. Share on social media how you’re supporting the health of Canada’s water using #MySmallAct.
