Learn how to build your own rain garden! Explore the critical role rain gardens can play in urban stream restoration, and how they add beautiful landscaping to your yard at the same time.

You will learn how to assess your site to determine the best location and size, calculate impervious surfaces, determine soil suitability, choose appropriate plants, and how to maintain your new rain garden. You will also receive a comprehensive manual that guides you through all the steps in constructing your rain garden. Where possible, workshop includes a short tour of a nearby rain garden.

Register here! Spaces available: 14 (of 40 max as of Nov 16th)


Rain Gardens
A rain garden is a sunken garden bed that captures stormwater runoff from hard surfaces like rooftops, sidewalks and driveways, and allows it to soak back into the ground naturally. They are planted with hardy, native perennials that filter pollutants commonly found in stormwater runoff. This helps reduce the overall amount of runoff and pollution that gets into our streams, and maintains the natural hydrology (the movement and distribution of water in the area, as it would be under natural conditions) so streams don’t go dry during the hot summer months.

If you are a resident of Gresham, you may be eligible for our $200 Rain Garden Incentive!

Why build a rain garden?
When a landscape is covered in natural vegetation, most rainfall soaks into the ground. As we start adding roofs, driveways, sidewalks, and streets to the landscape, much of the rainfall can’t soak into the ground anymore. This can create a lot of problems for people and for our streams.

Rain gardens hold stormwater runoff and allow it to soak into the ground naturally. This prevents pollution from entering our local streams and wetlands, and helps recharge our groundwater. By planting a rain garden with native plants, you can create a beautiful, low-maintenance and drought-tolerant landscape feature, while also providing habitat for beneficial wildlife. You can see examples of stormwater-managing features in the Rain Garden gallery
