This one-day course introduces educators to the concept of rain gardens and their value as schoolyard habitats. Participants will understand how rain gardens benefit the environment by improving the watershed and how they can be used as an extension of the classroom. Participants will leave with the basic knowledge of how to plan, design and implement a rain garden from start to finish.

This workshop can also be offered with a Landscaping for Water Quality theme that will focus more time on the particulars of rain garden creation and maintenance.  This workshop is geared toward a home or business owner instead of student based activities.
