Rain Gardens 101 Workshop
East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District (EMSWCD) offers free workshops to homeowners, businesses, landowners and community groups that are held throughout the tri-county Portland metropolitan region. These free workshops promote the use of native plants, water conservation, invasive weed identification, and creative stormwater solutions to improve water quality in local streams and rivers and to create healthy habitat for people and wildlife alike. As a partner in improving stormwater health, Bureau of Environmental Services is helping host the workshop. Part of a larger effort to bring healthy watershed function back to the neighborhood, this workshop provides step-by-step details on how to plan, design and build your own rain garden! Free and open to all. Call People's to register.
