12,000 Rain Gardens in Puget Sound
Washington State University and Stewardship Partners are spearheading a campaign to install 12,000 rain gardens in the Seattle/Puget Sound Region by 2016!
Visit www.12000raingardens.org to register your rain garden today and be a part of the water pollution solution!
Rain gardens are a proven way to prevent flooding, reduce water pollution and beautify your yard. Every year, heavy rains lead to massive flooding across Seattle and Puget Sound, wiping out roads, flooding homes and waterways with sewage. Rain gardens are very affordable options for homeowners compared with traditional pipe and drain systems, and require minimal time or skill to maintain each year. When planted with native plant species, the gardens attract birds, bees, and butterflies.
And, new education and incentive programs through Seattle RainWise Program help homeowners with rain garden installations at little to no cost. Contact us today to see if you qualify!
