As most readers will know, the Panther Hollow watershed is a major feature of the terrain around Oakland and Schenley Park. The watershed is quite a large area and covers much of the park. Unfortunately, with the deterioration of the stormwater pipes and the development around the watershed, adequate drainage has become a problem for the health of the park– not runoff too slow, but too fast. That is the reason for the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy to hold a ‘Healthy yards, healthy watershed’ workshop on March 5, where homeowners will learn about the Panther Hollow Watershed, how to design residential rain gardens, and basic techniques for stream restoration in the park. For details, see the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy website.
