April showers, they say, bring May flowers! Climate change is proving to have a measurable impact on rainfall, not just in spring, but year-round. So what DOES happen to a rain drop that falls in DuPage County? Join The Conservation Foundation, Kane-DuPage Soil and Water Conservation District, and DuPage County Stormwater Management as we trace the water falling on our impervious surfaces, learn about absorptive green infrastructure, and how urban development has changed the natural course of our water. We will explore how vast expanses of rooftops and pavement impact the ability of our landscape to mitigate flooding, recharge our groundwater, and survive drought conditions – offering insights and inspiration needed for each of us to make a positive impact on water resources and discover ways to contribute to the rejuvenation of our watershed!


Speakers include Kat Gerdts from Kane-DuPage Soil and Water District and Amy Phillips from The Conservation Foundation!
