Coming together for a healthier Duck Lake
The Watershed District and the City of Eden Prairie are partnering to engage residents who live in Duck Lake's watershed to take action to protect clean water. The overall goal of the project is to help 25% of homes in the watershed get involved. We hope to install 10 residential raingardens, plant 50 trees, distribute 50 rainbarrels, and create 5 raingarden-in-a-box planters. The Watershed District and City are providing the designs and funding for projects, and our community participants are providing the space and care.
