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.
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.
Learn more about adopting your own rain garden today!
