Laughing Brook joins the Great Outdoor Weekend (GOW) as a place to "learn about the importance of wetlands in reducing pollutants from storm water runoff at this constructed wetland and sculpture park across from Spring Grove Cemetery. Native plants and pervious pavement are just some of the ways to improve the water quality of Mill Creek."
More than just another urban park, Laughing Brook is a functional green space that has a lot to teach (see "If Fish Lived There" in the CityBeat issue of Sept. 29, 2007), and this weekend is the perfect opportunity to experience it first-hand.
“The Great Outdoor Weekend was designed by a group of environmental education and outdoor recreation organizations to provide a diverse sampling of the best nature activities in Greater Cincinnati,” says to GOW Web site. “Because of the generous financial and in-kind support of our sponsors and participating organizations, all programs are free and open to the public.”
Take a guided tour of Laughing Book at 1–3 p.m. Saturday.
