Hello Saluki Green Action Team! We have been learning ways to keep yourself cool this summer, but your lawn also needs care to thrive in warm weather and there's a green action for that. 

Did You Know: Watering your lawn at night or during the early morning hours can reduce evaporation 30 percent or more, depending on your location? (Source: http://www.isustainableearth.com/water-conservation/summer-water-saving-tips-for-your-lawn-and-garden) 

Take Action Now: Collect rainwater, be careful not to overwater your plants, and follow other tips you can read about in the source! As we learned last month, it is easy for water bills to climb in the summer. Be sure to also check for any leaks or holes in your system. 

To Win a Prize:Share our Facebook post or share and tag us on Instagram/Twitter (@siugreenaction) to spread this important information and be entered for a chance to win this month's prize! 

Invite your friends to join the team, too. If they mention that you referred them when they sign up, you'll receive an extra entry in our next prize drawing. 

Keep up the great work,

Saluki Green Action Team
