Watershed Management Group: Rain Garden Workshop – Northwest Fire District Station #31
Join us in building Rain Gardens along La Cholla Blvd in Flowing Wells!
Together with staff from the Northwest Fire District Station #31, and the Flowing Wells community, we’re continuing to stretch the green infrastructure corridor started last year at the Flowing Wells Junior High School near Wetmore Rd.
Street-side Rain Gardens (also known as green infrastructure) provide lots of benefits to communities! On top of helping reduce nuisance flooding along streets and planting the rain, Rain Gardens provide habitat for all kinds of wildlife, plants help provide shade to cool down spaces, and make public walking spaces feel more inviting!
Come ready to give shape to water harvesting basins, learn about plant placement to ensure plants thrive in these rain gardens, and take home a free Build-Your-Own-Basin kit that includes a shade tree, two grasses, a shrub, a pack of wildflower seeds, and organic mulch – all plants species that are native to our region!
