Innovative Solutions

Floating wetland islands for stormwater ponds are just one of the innovative solutions Friends of Wolf Run and it’s partners are working on to help reduce pollutants and provide aesthetic qualities to our neighborhoods.

Rafts support wetland plants that help absorb nutrients, shade the pond and provide a “pop of flowering color” to stormwater ponds in the watershed.
