  • N/A, September 7, 2018Tanapag Raingarden Revitalization

    As the school year kicks off it is a great time to show existing rain gardens a little love.

    Rain gardens help capture stormwater, reducing risks of flooding, in addition to providing ecosystem services. For these reasons they are considered a "Best Management Practice". But, they also need to be maintained! This event will focus on revitalizing the existing rain garden at Tanapag Middle School with our partners at PSS and at Tanapag.

    More details coming soon regarding this rain garden revitalization work party!
