Volunteer to Help Plant Community Rain Gardens (3 hr shifts: Wednesdays - Saturdays)

When: Wednesdays-Fridays, 1-4 p.m. and Wednesdays-Saturdays, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Continues through Oct. 7

Friends of the Rouge (FOTR) has worked with the Plymouth Arts and Recreation Complex (PARC), where FOTR's office is located, to build upwards of 23 rain gardens. Totaling close to 20,000 square feet, altogether the gardens soak up over 225,000 gallons of water during each storm. These rain gardens help stop flooding in Tonquish Creek, filter out pollution, and create habitat for birds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Throughout the month of September, we will continue to work with small groups of 10-15 volunteers to plant and maintain over 10,000 native plant plugs.
