  • Snohomish CD - Everett Rain Garden Q&A 2020

    Date: October 21, 2020
    Time: 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

    Make a date to tour some rain gardens in historic north Everett. Once you register, receive a map of local rain gardens you can visit at your convenience. Then, join Snohomish CD for a question and answer session at lunchtime to learn more about what you saw and ask questions about these great stormwater collecting options. These gardens do all the work in your yard by collecting, absorbing and filtering the rain that runs off your roof. Be inspired while exploring a great alternative to lawn. Do a rain garden walking tour in Historic North Everett, socially distanced with your friends or family! </p>

    Dress for the weather when you're out for your tour, but stay cozy inside for the webinar. </p>
