April 1, 2017, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Burien Community Center
The City of Burien will be installing 10 rain gardens on private property in low income neighborhoods across Burien. The City will choose the where the rain gardens are placed based on the neighborhood’s income level, how well the soil can absorb water, and the quality of the home’s downspouts. The installations will feature workshops where community members can volunteer and learn about rain gardens.
Come to our open house to learn more about this opportunity. Our contractor, DIRTCorps, will be giving a presentation about design and steps to building a rain garden. All presentations, workshops, and applications will be available in both English and Spanish. To attend the free open house, please register with the Community Center at 206-988-3700 or www.burienparks.net.
Support for this project is provided in part by the Puget Sound Stewardship and Mitigation Fund through the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance and the Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment.
