Take a Rain Check Workshop and Dream Big About Spring Projects!

As winter fades, daydreams of warm days spent relaxing outdoors keep us going until spring arrives. But if your reverie is dampened by a cracked patio, an ugly spot in the yard, or a lackluster front stoop, heading to a free Rain Check workshop in March or April is just what you need.

You’ll learn about a variety of landscape improvements or “green tools” that can make residential properties more beautiful while protecting local waterways.

The best part? Taking a workshop is the first step to starting a Rain Check project and saving up to $2,000 with our funding. That extra help means you can dream big this spring: even custom-designed, professionally-installed rain gardens cost most Rain Check participants less than $400!

See if your property could qualify for a beautiful rain garden using the Pick Your Project quiz and sign up for a workshop today.
