Girl Scouts are building rain gardens, which are planted depressions filled with native plants that capture and absorb storm water and serve as functional gardens. You'll go on the It’s Your Planet—Love It! Leadership Journey and learn about, construct, and maintain a rain garden at school, home, and your friend's homes.
|GOAL:||To increase green space and wildlife habitats, and improve water quality by reducing water-borne pollutants running into streams, rivers, and other water supplies|
