Join Keep Austin Beautiful as we seek to equip volunteer passion with resources and install a rain garden on the Sims Elementary School campus. Over the course of three months, we will engage the community and surrounding neighborhoods in creating a beautiful native rain garden to help mitigate flooding and encourage native pollinators.
For this project, volunteers will be working on the first phase of the rain garden installation by digging the garden's foundation and shaping the land to filter water appropriately. This project is the foundation for all of the rain garden projects to come! Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes and long pants and bring a full reusable bottle of water. Tools, supplies and guidance will be provided.
