Rain garden workshop

The city of Duluth is working with Minnesota Sea Grant and the Regional Stormwater Protection Team to offer a two-night rain garden workshop to area residents this week.

Rain gardens are a lovely addition to a yard and provide a buffer to slow down and filter runoff from storms, slowing erosion and sedimentation in local streams, too.

The workshop is set for 6-8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. Registration is $25. Contact Cristina Villella at (218) 726-8106 or ville034@umn.edu for more info.
