We are looking for volunteers to help develop and test a Rapid Assessment Protocol for rain gardens.
If you are in or near Thurston, Pierce, Snohomish or Jefferson counties and available to spend 30-60 minutes observing and recording specific elements of your assigned rain garden then we’d love to hear from you.
We will most likely team you up with at least one other volunteer and assign you to assess between 1 and 3 rain gardens in August or September.
Contact Emma by August 11th to learn more or sign up!
Background: Rain gardens are an important tool to clean up polluted runoff throughout Puget Sound. These gardens keep storm water out of the streets, allow time for water to infiltrate into soils and filter out pollutants through plants, organisms and fungi in the soils.
