Flooded basements, flooded streets, and dirty creeks share a common cause, and that’s too much dirty water runoff during big storms.  Join Matthew Bertrand with Friends of the Rouge for an introduction to RainSmart, and find out how you can do your part. Learn how to get your lawn a job: soaking up the rainwater. Or, take it a step further by planting a rain garden, and help us reach our big goal for the Rouge: 1,000 rain gardens by 2025. Get smart... RainSmart!
