Rain gardens are not only beautiful but functional. They help control stormwater runoff (rain) from hard surfaces such as roofs and driveways by holding it in place to soak into the ground slowly. In addition, the roots of the plants and soil help to filter pollutants the stormwater collects along the way. Stormwater pollution is the number one source of pollution on our waterways. Anyone can plant a rain garden!
Amy Roskilly and Elizabeth Hiser from Cuyahoga SWCD will talk about the importance of rain gardens and the opportunity to take a five-class workshop this summer to become a certified Master Rain Gardener at this workshop hosted by the Cleveland Metroparks Watershed Volunteer Program.
