Let it Soak In: Rain Garden Workshop

A rain garden is a beautiful landscape amenity that allows you to manage and treat polluted stormwater runoff on your property, thereby protecting local waterways and Puget Sound, while also creating a habitat nook.

Do your part to help protect streams and Puget Sound while also keeping stormwater drainage away from your home. Stream Team and WSU Extension’s Native Plant Salvage will co-sponsor a free workshop will provide all the details needed to build one or more rain gardens in your yard to create a low-maintenance, attractive feature that will also provide habitat for birds and butterflies.


This how-to workshop is typically offered in January and April from 6:00 to 8:15 p.m.  There will also be an optional hands-on component from 8:15pm-9:00pm. Each participant will receive detailed information about designing and building a rain garden, as well as a full-color rain garden poster and a copy of WSU's "Rain Garden Handbook for Western Washington Homeowners."
