More about the Westlake Watershed Group

Important to remember: All storm water flows directly into Lake Erie untreated. It is our duty, as Westlake residents, to be conscious of our environment for future generations.

2017 Rain and Garden Show

The City of Westlake and the Westlake Watershed Group hosted a very successful Rain & Garden Show at Market Square in Crocker Park. As always it was FREE and open to the public. We hope you had the opportunity to visit us. If not, save the date for next year's show. 
Our goals for the show was to help raise awareness on stormwater quality issues and to promote eco-friendly products for a healthier life. Our knowledgeable local vendors helped our residents with tips on how to beautify their homes and yards naturally. We had Executive Chef John Ellis from St. John Medical Center whipping up some refreshing and energy boosting smoothies.

The benefits to “Going Green” are endless, Go Green for the Westlake, for the World!
