Join in! Get your hands dirty this spring and make an enormous difference for your Rouge River.

Site Coordinator: Matthew Bertrand, Restoration Coordinator, Friends of the Rouge

Project description:  Join the effort to build a brand new rain garden at the Civic Center! Over the course of three volunteer days, we’ll mulch and plant this demonstration rain garden, which will soak up and filter thousands of gallons of stormwater every time it rains. The garden will feature an attractive diversity of native plants that support birds, butterflies, and pollinator species. This year, make a real difference on behalf of your Rouge River!

Workday location: Southfield Civic Center

Registered participants will receive a map the week before the project.
