New Rain Garden Installed

Twenty-three volunteers joined Jefferson MRC, WSU Extension and City of Port Townsend to help plant the newest MRC's rain garden at the corner of Lincoln and Adams St in uptown Port Townsend in late April. Rain gardens capture and treat stormwater runoff, preventing contaminants from reaching local marine waters and this is the 9th MRC rain garden collaborative. 

Groundbreakers, the AAUW garden group, has pledged to help the adjacent landowner care for this latest installation. Thank you, everyone!
