Washington State University and Stewardship Partners are leading the groundbreaking campaign to install 12,000 Rain Gardens in the Puget Sound Region by 2016.
You can actively participate in this exciting effort by installing Rain Gardens and seeing immediate benefits:
Rain Gardens work like a native forest by capturing and infiltrating polluted runoff from rooftops, driveways, and other hard surfaces. 12,000 Rain Gardens would soak up 160 million gallons of polluted runoff to protect our waterways, significantly helping stop the stormwater crisis that is threatening our waterways.
