ROCK RIVER COALITION, INC: Rain Garden In Every Community

Purpose

We anticipate working primarily in areas where rain garden and storm water education has not yet occurred. Rain gardens will be installed at schools or other community locations in eight basin communities and will be highly visible. Students and community groups will develop the rain gardens. The rain gardens are expected to increase public involvement in local community decision- making by raising awareness of environmental issues facing the Rock River Basin. A full description of the project goal and objectives are in the grant application, which is a part of this application.
