Oakland County Parks hosts Rain Gardens Workshop

Oakland County Parks horticulture staff hosts the Rain Gardens Workshop, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.on Saturday, May 22, at the Oakland County Parks (formerly Ernst) Greenhouse.
Participants will learn how to install, maintain and select the proper plant materials for rain gardens. There will be a hands-on planting demonstration of an on-site rain garden. Light refreshments will be available. 
A rain garden is a planted depression that reduces rain runoff by absorbing the stormwater from roofs, driveways, walkways and lawn areas.
Cost is $10/person for members or $15/person for non-members.
Pre-registration required online at www.stewardshipnetwork.org.
