Raingarden Workshop - WCD Office in Oakdale

Did you know that stormwater runoff carries leaves, grass clippings, fertilizers and pesticides from streets and rooftops that are contaminating your lakes and rivers? The easiest way to help water infiltrate into the ground rather than run off into storm sewers is by creating a raingarden. Attractive and beautiful, these strategically placed gardens will intercept rain water runoff. Come and learn about how to install a raingarden in your yard, choose from variety of colorful plant palettes, get design assistance and learn about cost-share or grant funding opportunities available to help you install a beautiful, functional raingarden. This free workshop is sponsored by the East Metro Water Resource Education Program, Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed District, and the Washington Conservation District. 

We would like people to pre-register so that we can bring an aerial photograph of their property for the design portion of the workshop.

Tuesday, March 4th 6:00-7:30 WCD Office Training Room– Pre-register by Feb. 28
