Join us for a hands on opportunity to learn about Rain Gardens and how they can impact wildlife for Orca Recovery Day! We will be working on the mature rain gardens at Coupeville Library to thin plants which have become dominant over time, remove weeds, and transplant in new plant species which benefit both the rain garden impacts and pollinator habitat!

You will learn about the basics of designing a rain garden, the maintenance required over time, plants for pollinator habitat, and how rain gardens filter storm water run off and help support our marine environments, including Orcas!

Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and be prepared to get dirty. We will provide a limited number of tools and gloves, so if you have your own to bring that would be great!
