Description
Join the Boys & Girls Clubs at Bertha Sadler Means Middle School in the last day of a three part project! We are looking for 40 dedicated volunteers to help in the last stages of a Rain Garden. On Saturday, May16th we will be completing the garden by preparing the soil, planting grasses and plants, and mulching the garden. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a water bottle, hat, suncreen, and smile for a morning of fun! Please arrive on time and ready to start making a difference in the community.

What is a rain garden? Rain gardens filter runoff and protect groundwater, especially after significant downpour. They also add unexpected beauty to low spots that tend to collect water and draw wildlife.
