Babbling Brook Eco Art Project

 

 

This was a collaborative project with CRA, civil engineers and native plant experts. Babbling Brook is a stormwater beautification EcoArt project that creates an aesthetically pleasing dry detention area and increases stormwater quality by circulating water from the Central Lake across the street through the Babbling Brook. The remaining portion of the dry detention area is landscaped with over 70 species of native Florida plant species that provide food and shelter for migrating birds and the opportunity for hands-on science (citizen scientist) for community members. This project has received “Urban Oasis Designation” from Audubon of Florida. Recycled concrete slabs taken during sewer renovations in another area of the CRA were used as sculptural pieces to line both sides of the brook channel and create the retaining wall at the head of the brook.
