The 2013 Spring WingDing, the neighborhood’s annual celebration, has been scheduled for Saturday, April 27th, at the Audubon Park Recreation Center, 1320 29th Ave. NE, from 11am to 2pm.

ANA, Northeast Middle School (NEMS), and the Recreation Center have collaborated to bring this event to life, with additional support from groups at Edison High School.

ANA Offers Rain Garden Program

The “Neighborhood of Rain Gardens”

Rain gardens are beautiful and environmentally significant landscaping features that are gaining popularity. For the second time, Audubon Neighborhood Association is partnering with Metro Blooms and the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization to educate Audubon homeowners about the benefits and beauty of rain gardens.

Audubon homeowners and property owners are eligible to participate in a neighborhood rain-garden program to manage storm water runoff in the Mississippi River watershed. Up to 30 properties in Audubon Park will be selected to receive onsite consultations, where a rain garden design will be created specific to the property owner’s location. The neighborhood association will provide the majority of the funding for consultations and installations, so the property owner will be able to install the garden at a very reasonable cost.
