Cascade Meadow seeks to support a conversation about the health of our communities, which we believe include our built and natural environments, our economy, and our social lives.
We support this conversation by serving as a regional resource for education on water, energy, and wetlands, and by partnering with others who support sustainable living. Learn more »

Solutions to Storm Water Pollution – Megan Moeller (City of Rochester)
Rain and snow melt that falls on buildings, streets, parking lots, and other impervious surfaces cannot soak into the ground. Stormwater collects dirt, debris, and chemicals as it travels across these hard surfaces, carrying them into our lakes, streams, and rivers; often without treatment. Polluted stormwater can harm people and aquatic plants and animals. Join us to learn what simple practices you can implement on your property, be it residential or commercial, to minimize your contribution to stormwater pollution.
Megan Moeller is the storm water educator at the City of Rochester. This talk is part of the Zumbro Watershed Partnership’s “Water Ways” Speaker Series that takes place the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota Cascade Meadow in Rochester.
For more information, contact ZWP Education Coordinator Kevin Strauss at 507-993-3411 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
ZWP is celebrating 10 years of working for "Cleaner Water and Fewer Floods"!
Please note: Although we love our furry best friends, we must ask that you leave your dog at home. This will protect the waters of Cascade Creek, protect the growing wildlife population in our wetlands, and ensure that all visitors can have close encounters with beautiful and fascinating plants and wildlife. Thank you for your cooperation.
