From parking lot to paradise

Removing hard surfaces, like pavement, and replacing them with LID features, like rain gardens, native plants and grasses, and permeable surfaces, allows rainwater to infiltrate and filter into the ground naturally, preventing polluted runoff from reaching Lake Simcoe.

Upcoming Depave Event

Light of Christ Catholic Elementary School, Aurora

On Tuesday May 23rd, 2017, Windfall Centre will depave over 450 square metres of pavement from the schoolyard at Light of Christ CES with the help of students, teachers and parents! The currently paved surface will be replaced with beautiful greenspace, including mulch, native trees, native plants, and log benches for the students to enjoy.

Stay tuned for event photos and updates!
