Rain Gardens capture and soak in the rainwater that runs off hard surfaces like roofs and driveways. This rainwater runoff picks up dirt and is the #1 source of pollution in rivers. Anyone can plant a rain garden in their own yard. You must attend all 5 online classes, and build a rain garden to earn the Master Rain Gardener certification. Field trip TBD. Hosted by Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner's Office. Instructors: Susan Bryan, Rain Garden Coordinator; Harry Sheehan, Deputy Water Resources Commissioner; Shannan Gibb-Randall, Principal at InSite Design Studio, Inc.
