Volunteer Rain Garden Party Planting Party: Join the volunteer rain garden planting party on Sept. 26 from 5-7 p.m. Volunteers will be planting six newly-constructed rain gardens. Meet at 4423 181th Pl. S.W. to get equipped with gloves and a shovel. Instructors will go over tool safety and give a planting demo. Volunteers will then split up the group between the six gardens to begin planting.

Rain gardens are designed landscape features that store and filter rainwater. These gardens do a great job of filtering pollutants and recharging groundwater. Volunteers will be planting beautiful, hardy, low-maintenance, native plants that can withstand drought and wet root conditions.

The locations of the gardens are:

  • 4328 184th St. S.W.
  • 4229 184th St. S.W.
  • 18314 42nd Pl. W.
