Rain Garden Workshop
Saturday, June 11

Please join us for a FREE City-sponsored public workshop with Metro Blooms, experts in resilient landscapes. The workshop will include learning about rain garden installation and maintenance while helping to restore the rain gardens at the old Courthouse grounds. 

Our goal is to expand green infrastructure by increasing local knowledge, connecting property owners with skilled contractors, and building volunteer capacity to support the City’s rain gardens. 

LOCATION: Old Courthouse grounds, currently the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Headquarters. 415 Washington Ave. in Bayfield

TIME: 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.  We are ending mid-afternoon so participants may fit the Bayfield in Bloom Garden Tour into their schedules. Even if you can’t attend the full session, please register for 1/2 day option.

Participants should be prepared to work in the rain gardens: wear work clothes and gloves. Final details will be sent to registrants by June 1st.
