Join Raleigh Stormwater staff to learn about rain gardens, rain barrels, and how you can use them on your property! Registration link coming soon. This event is in coordination with Regional Creek Week 2024.
A rain garden, or bioretention area, is a planted area that collects and cleans rainwater coming from roads, sidewalks, roofs, driveways and patios. The plants and soil in the garden slow down the water and filter out pollution before it reaches a storm drain or creek.
Rain barrels are a simple way to capture, store, and use rainwater as it flows from gutters and downspouts onto a property. This helps reduce stormwater pollution to local streams, lakes, and rivers. You can use the water for gardening and even to wash your car or walkway/driveway!
