Rain gardens capture stormwater runoff before it pollutes our local rivers- while providing beautiful gardenscapes throughout the growing season. You can become a volunteer steward and adopt a public rain garden or you can volunteer with GIVE 365 for a one day workday. Stewards care for the plants, clean out sediment and keep the space looking beautiful with guidance and support from an expert.

This program is a collaborative program between the City of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office. View the Public Rain Garden Map to see where the rain gardens are located. Contact Catie Wytychak at wytychakc@ewashtenaw.org or call (734) 222-6813 for more information or to adopt a rain garden. 

If you are a member of a group that wants to adopt a rain garden or organize a volunteer workday, sign up through GIVE365 by emailing Melissa at adopt-a-park@a2gov.org. Group workdays are a fun and educational way to care for a public space, learn how rain gardens work and identify common native plants and weeds. Learn more about rain gardens and the Master Rain Gardener course.

Stay tuned for 2020 volunteer workdays with GIVE 365 in rain gardens.
