RCWA seeks volunteers to build rain gardens this Sunday (Nov. 16)

Richland Creek Watershed Alliance needs volunteers to build rain gardens this Sunday (Nov. 16) at 1 p.m. RCWA and its partners have been working hard to get the clearance and design the rain gardens, which will be built at West End Middle School (3529 West End Avenue) and along 54th Avenue near Richland Creek. (Volunteers for the latter site will gather at 320 54th Avenue.) According to RCWA, "rain gardens reduce pollution, create wildlife habitat for the bees, birds and butterflies and make us feel good."

Please RSVP if you plan to attend to help RCWA prepare in advance to staff both sites. Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves and shovels to participate. Planting will follow the next week. There will also be a short discussion about rain gardens and how they help the environment.
