Community Garden at the Prairie Briarcliff intersection in Ann Arbor.

We’ll be touring a few of the rain gardens created for the Millers Creek Rainwater Project.

Wednesday, June 23 at 7pm.

Meet at Thurston Elementary School, 2300 Prairie Street, Ann Arbor.

Experts from HRWC, JFNew and InSite Design Studio with the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s rain garden program will be on hand to talk about and answer questions on the Millers Creek Rainwater Project, the project gardens, and rain gardens in general.

Stops include:

  • Thurston Elementary School rain garden, planted by Thurston’s third graders in the spring of 2009.
  • Community Rain Garden at the intersection of Prairie and Briarcliff planted in the spring of 2009.
  • A backyard rain garden designed to handle stormwater that collects in a low spot of  a private residence on Georgetown.

Whether you live in the neighborhood, are thinking about planting a rain garden, are looking for good examples of native plants or are just curious about what we’re doing, please join us!
