We celebrated the installation of the 100th rain garden to be built through our cost share program last month at Olalla Elementary School. In addition to building the rain garden, the project introduced students to the benefits of rain gardens and issues surrounding pollution and stormwater.
We’ll continue to work towards our next hundred rain gardens with our Dig Day projects in 2014.
KCD Rain Garden Team Celebrates RG 100!
Thanks to all of the Kitsap landowners who collaborated with us on our first 100 rain gardens. Your kind cooperation is always appreciated!

Backyard habitat completed project
These projects will help restore streams to natural conditions, improve fish and wildlife habitat, and stabilize banks:
- Planting stream side areas with native plants
- Removing debris
- Removing undersized culverts, old dams or concrete structures to improve fish passage
- Removing noxious weeds and replacing with native plants
- Adding woody debris and stream gravel to enhance streams
Projects should emphasize physical implementation, and more project ideas are welcome.
