Watershed Education: Rain Gardens

Rain Garden Class


Build your own Raingarden: Homeowner Edition

Spring classes have concluded. Please check back in the fall!

Below you will find the class description. Register now on the SCC Continuing Education website Remote Site or contact Southeast Community College at 437-2700.

A rain garden is a garden of native perennials, grasses and shrubs planted in a depression which captures rainwater runoff from your roof, driveway and patio. Rain gardens significantly reduce the amount of storm water runoff and surface water pollution leaving your property. Join us to learn how to design, install and choose plants for a rain garden, among other water quality topics. The first half of class will be spent in the classroom and the second half installing an actual rain garden in Lincoln—so come prepared for digging! You will receive an illustrated handbook to take with you and all the knowledge you need to build a rain garden.

Co-sponsored by City of Lincoln Watershed Management and the Nebraska Environmental Trust. Each class will be held at a different public or non-profit site location, which will be determined closer to the date. Students will be notified of location. Supplies provided by Nebraska Environmental Trust. Class is weather permitting and will be rescheduled due to rain.
