18th Street SW Rain Gardens, September 2010

September 2010 Rain Gardens Installation - 18th Street SW

The dynamic group of the city of Puyallup, Pierce Stream Team, Stewardship Partners and many other local area businesses once again came together to host an equally dynamic environmental stewardship event.  The third cluster installation in the City came on a sunny morning, that hung around just long enough for the event on September 18, 2010.  In the 800-900 block of 18th Street SW, just east of Clarks Creek and DeCoursey parks, six rain gardens were planted along with several residential  banks along Clarks Creek.

The days events also included many other environmentally-conscience events such as Home Energy Audits sponsored by PSE, a Fish-Friendly Car Washing demonstration by the City, a compost-amending lawn demonstration, and exhibits by several supporting local businesses.

Take a look at the photographs below, the Picasa web album, or link over to the Google Maps listing of this, and other local rain garden clusters.
