Rain Garden workshop-Towson (Rescheduled)

June 5 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Event Navigation

We apologize for any inconvenience. This workshop needs to be rescheduled in the fall. Please visit our online calendar of events for other environmental stewardship opportunities. Thank you!

Note: Participants are expected to wear face masks during this event. The event will be held outdoors and adhere to our COVID-19 social distancing policy.

Rain gardens are a beautiful AND functional solution to stormwater runoff. Learn how to create one.

Join us for a FREE Rain Garden workshop and then get hands-on experience installing a rain garden at a private residence in Towson.

A rain garden is a special, water loving garden that helps soak up rain water from your roof or driveway.  It is designed to capture water from a 1” rain storm and slowly infiltrate it back into the ground. By using beautiful, native flowers, grasses and even trees, a rain garden will beautify your yard while reducing stormwater impacts.  It also provides habitat for wildlife, beneficial insects, such as ladybugs, and pollinators like butterflies.

No gardening experience necessary! A maximum of 10 people, including the homeowner and our staff, will be allowed to participate in this event. We are allowing minors (ages 10 – 17) to attend our events as long as there is one parent/legal guardian per two children.
