Build a Rain Garden!
During the month of April, Girl Scouts around America will pledge to take part in our latest Forever Green project. The said project will be to plant and maintain rain gardens at your school, home or other sites. Rain gardens increase green space and wildlife habitat, and improve water quality by reducing waterborne pollutants running into streams, rivers and other water supplies. We look forward to seeing your rain gardens so please share any photos with us! For more information, please visit the Forever Green website.
