Julie Welker works with community members on projects that improve the health of their local environment. She likes the rain garden as a simple and attractive feature that can reduce flooding, improve water quality, and protect local streams.
"Rain gardens are designed to filter and absorb water runoff from roofs, driveways, and sidewalks. They're planted with flowers and grasses that help to filter the water, and attract birds and butterflies."
A rain garden can reduce stormwater runoff by up to 80% and look great, too!
