I need your HELP, or I should say that the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association needs your help. Who is the worst polluter of our streams in NC? Durham County. Ellerbe Creek is a mess. Here is the important part: ELLERBE CREEK CONTRIBUTES POLLUTION TO FALLS LAKE, RALEIGH'S WATER RESERVOIR! Lots of folks are helping, including Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association. ECWA is planning more residential rain garden installations this spring. NATIVE PLANTS ARE NEEDED. If you have extra native plants, potted up, please consider contributing them. I can send you a list of plants most needed if you want. The plants can be picked up from your home, or maybe someone will collect them for me at the swap. This is a great cause, and it impacts most of us directly. Also join the ECWA list serve to stay informed of improvements!
