New! Stormwater Outreach Toolkit & Curriculum Resources

Jefferson MRC and WSU Extension worked with Michelle Chow, our former Program Assistant,  to reach out to local communities about stormwater issues and local actions. Michelle wrote articles for neighborhood newsletters, researched potential new rain garden sites and put together several resource packets for teachers and other community groups.  Thank you, Northwest Straits Foundation, for the Opportunity Fund grant that supported this position, and thank you, Michelle, for moving us forward! 

Two of these resource documents are now on our Resources Page:

  • Media Toolkit with curriculum resources for teachers and articles you can share
  • Brief presentation to explain "What is a Rain Garden" .
