Sinking the Stormwater2

Coastal Action is building a rain garden next to the HB Studios Sports Centre parking lot to filter the stormwater that is running off into the LaHave River. This stormwater runoff degrades our infrastructure along with aquatic habitats by erosion and pollution.

Coastal Action needs your help. Please visit our Small Change Fund Project, to learn more about our project and donate!
