Join us for the first ever Rain Garden Ramble!
Cougar Creek Streamkeepers is a dedicated volunteer run organization in North Delta that uses different projects like rain gardens, stream side restoration, and salmon rearing to ensure the health of Cougar Creek. This PIBC event will be led by Deborah Jones who has helped construct eighteen rain gardens throughout North Delta; one in every elementary school and four in middle schools. The Rain Garden Ramble will showcase the extensive rain gardens that have been built throughout North Delta, and allow guests to ask questions about challenges, opportunities, and insights when constructing rain gardens. The ramble will take roughly 2 hours and is mostly on flat, paved surfaces (with a few unpaved surfaces). We would love to see as many of you as possible, so feel free to bring kids as well! We will stop for coffee/tea before the ramble, and we invite you to join us after the ramble at either Four Winds or Russel Brewing Co. (depending on numbers).
