Master RAIN Gardener 5-Week Course
Monday, Jan. 20th

Chagrin River Watershed Partners, in partnership with other organizations, will again be offering a Master Rain Gardener certification course for residents and professionals within Northeast Ohio. This 5-week course is open to residents of Northeast Ohio and can be taken in-person or online.  The program is being offered 4 times in 2020.  The first online course starts February 3 and registration is open now!

Rain gardens are depressed gardens filled with native, wet-tolerant plants that capture and soak in rainwater that runs of impervious surfaces like roofs, lawns, and driveways. They filter out the pollutants that would otherwise flow into our storm drains and streams untreated. When replicated across the residential landscape, rain gardens can make a big difference in protecting the water quality of our local streams and Lake Erie.

This course will teach you how to design, install, and maintain rain gardens on a residential scale. All graduates will receive a Master Rain Gardener certification, t-shirt, and yard sign!  Please feel free to pass this information on to your landscaper or anyone you know who lives in Northeast Ohio that might be interested in these courses.

More information on the program can be found on the attached flyer and on thier website:
