Nature That Nurtures: Landscaping to provide habitat, control stormwater, and attract people
Nature That Nurtures tells the story of how one church property was modified to control stormwater runoff and add natural habitat with rain gardens and native plants.  The manual serves as a guide for community groups or individuals looking to improve their stewardship of natural resources.  It provides detailed information on rain garden construction, stormwater control, wildlife-friendly landscaping, and the importance of native plants, as well as suggestions for getting people involved in the process.
The 4th edition of Nature That Nurtures is available in print, and for download as an interactive PDF here.​​​​​​​
