The popular program, which helps older adults take full advantage of Hamilton’s transit system, will once again be presented by Green Venture, a local non-profit environmental outreach organization.Four free workshops are being offered at locations around Greater Hamilton in October and November covering such topics as local bus routes, bus fares and passes, seniors’ discounts and trip planning.Equip with trowels and enthusiasm the students dug and planted native shrubs, plants and grasses into their very own Rain Garden!
We used all of these methods to catch stormwater before it becomes runoff, before it picks up pollutants like car oil, cigarette butts, litter, fertilizers and pet waste, before it goes down the storm drain, and ultimately before it ends up polluting our Hamilton Harbour!
Well on their way to becoming “Raingers”, the students took a walk around the neighbourhood to identify some of these stormwater management techniques in real life.
The workshops equip participants with the knowledge and skills to navigate public transit confidently and efficiently.
The program is also expanding into Niagara Region, where three workshops will be held.
First, we put our thinking caps on and learned all about stormwater, pollution, our watershed and what we can do to keep our water clean!
Then, as the sun was calling our name, we took to the schoolyard to tackle the next challenge: how much stormwater can we capture!
