Join us as we discuss the benefits that rain gardens can bring to both your backyard and your community. Starting with the connection between stormwater and watershed health, we’ll explain how rain gardens contribute to healthy rivers and clean streams while adding an attractive landscape feature to your yard. Through a step-by-step process, you will learn how to assess your property, determine the proper location and size for a rain garden, select plant materials, and maintain the rain garden.
A tour of the school’s new courtyard rain garden will follow the workshop!
