Adopt – A – Rain Garden

    The City’s Volunteer Program and the Stormwater Education and Outreach Program are partnering on a new volunteer opportunity to allow you to adopt a local rain garden.

    Volunteers (individuals, families, groups or a local business) will be asked to help maintain a rain garden (or two!) by removing invasives, picking up litter, installing new plants, and mulching edges.

    Commitments are two years and volunteers should plan to spend a minimum of 8-10 hours per year on at least three days.

    Check out our list of available gardens!

    Volunteers will be recognized with a sign at their rain garden.

    Public Works Department staff members will be available to provide orientation and training regarding the maintenance of your rain garden.
