GLEN STREAM
RESTORATION TOUR

Have you heard of the Glen Stream at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and do you know where it’s hidden on the Garden campus? A few years ago, this stream had been overrun by invasive plants and subject to pollution runoff which contributed to erosion and poor water quality. If you live in an urban environment, you may be familiar with this type of situation in your own neighborhood. The Glen Stream Restoration project is a landscape solution to slow the water, mitigate the stormwater runoff and allow the water to be absorbed in a way that benefits the soil and encourages plant, insect and animal diversity to return. With completion of the restoration done 1 1/2 years ago, come join Garden Guide, Lorrie Lincoln to see how things are progressing. Please note we will be walking on uneven surfaces. Meet in the atrium of the Robins Visitors Center.

All programs are subject to change.

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden strives to be a Garden for all and we are committed to offering diverse adult learning opportunities that are inclusive and accessible to all learners. If you would like to request an accommodation to support your participation in an adult learning opportunity at the Garden, please contact [email protected] or call 804-262-9887 x328 and we will make our best effort to help.
