Study Center, Scarborough High School
Friends of Scarborough Marsh (FOSM) is pleased to host a Fall Lecture about marsh-friendly lawn care practices with Jami Fitch, Scarborough’s Sustainability Coordinator, on Wednesday, October 23rd from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. Jami will draw on her extensive experience with healthy lawn care for this free lecture.
The Town of Scarborough is partnering with FOSM on this lecture as part of the Phillips Brook Restoration Project. The Town recently received a grant to begin restoration work in Phillips Brook, which flows from the Dunstan area into the Scarborough Marsh. Keeping the marsh healthy is of great importance and this lecture will provide details on how the community can affect the quality of marsh water. Join us in the Study Center at Scarborough High School for this free event. Use the front entrance off Durant Drive and follows signs to the lecture.
Funding for the Phillips Brook Restoration Project was provided, in part, by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act. The funding is administered by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection in partnership with EPA.
