Volunteers (individuals, families, groups or a local businesses) will be asked to help maintain a rain garden 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 their rain garden.

Check out our list of available gardens!
