How to Get RainWise Webinar Info Session
Date: August 18, 2022
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Register at http://bit.ly/summerwebs Learn how RainWise rebates for rain gardens and cisterns combat pollution! With every storm, rain carries pollutants off our roofs, driveways and other hard surfaces to local creeks, Lake Washington and Puget Sound. Rain gardens and cisterns can help control this stormwater, but we need your help! In selected areas of Seattle, the City of Seattle and King County will pay up to 100 percent of the cost of installing rain gardens and cisterns on homeowners’ properties. This webinar is for homeowners in RainWise-eligible basins throughout Seattle who are interested in learning more about the RainWise program and rebates. At this webinar you will learn: • about the stormwater problem, • about the solutions (View Full event Description Here: https://700milliongallons.org/event/how-to-get-rainwise-webinar-info-session-2/)
Blix Elementary Rain Garden Clean Up - Tacoma
Date: August 20, 2022
Time: 9:00 am - 11:30 am
Location: Peck Athletic Fields, 1425 S State St, Tacoma, WA 98405, USA
Join PCD, Metro Parks, the Central Neighborhood Council, and others to Depave the Peck parking lot and make way for new green spaces in the neighborhood. Free pizza will be provided for volunteers!
After walking by a usually empty parking lot during the pandemic, community members living around Peck Fields nominated the lot to be Depaved. Metro Parks Tacoma, who owns the parking lot, has agreed to taking out parts of the lot to replace it with a new rain garden, trees, and pollinator plants. By replacing pavement with rain gardens and green spaces, we can reduce the amount of polluted stormwater runoff that goes into our gutters and out to the Salish Sea.
