There’s a colorful exhibit on rain gardens and their benefits, which include creating habitat and reducing storm runoff that can harm local creeks. If you’re interested in harvesting rainwater at home, you’ll find resources to help you get started. The exhibit was created by the Salmon Protection and Watershed Network (SPAWN) as part of the 10,000 Rain Gardens Project, a partnership of SPAWN and MMWD.
Next to the rain gardens exhibit, you’ll find a diorama of the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed. Get a bird’s-eye view of where much of our water comes from—and maybe an idea for an outing or two!
You don’t need to be paying a bill to pay us a visit. The lobby is open 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. In addition to checking out the new displays, be sure to browse our free literature table to find water conservation ideas for your home and garden, volunteer opportunities on the watershed, and more.
