    Time: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

    Location: Carnation Elementary School, 4950 Tolt Ave, Carnation, WA 98014, USA
    Join Stewardship Partners, Carnation Elementary School, the Snoqualmie Tribe, and Aspect Consulting as we celebrate Earth Day’s 50 year anniversary with a maintenance work party at the Carnation Elementary School rain gardens. In 2015, Stewardship Partners received a grant from the King County Flood Control District to work with the 3rd grade class to design and install two rain gardens on the campus. They were installed in 2018 and are doing great, they just need a little upkeep and weeding! Rain gardens are a beautiful landscape amenity that help address our region’s single largest water quality threat: run off pollution. Like a sponge, a rain gardens allow stormwater runoff to be soaked up, and filter out pollutants while recharging ground water instead of flooding the Snoqualmie River.

    Refreshments (coffee, water & snacks), tools, gloves, and an overview of the work, why it’s important and how to do it are provided. We’ll educate volunteers about the project and our efforts in the Snoqualmie Valley. Bring a full water bottle and a coffee cup or travel mug for refreshments.
