Plant the Rain Gardens at PARC! Volunteer shifts from 9am-12pm or 1pm to 4pm on Wed-Fri Please reserve your spot on our website. Come be a part of Rouge history by helping to plant the rain gardens at PARC! In October 2020, Friends of the Rouge (FOTR) worked with the Plymouth Arts and Recreation Complex (PARC), where FOTR’s office is located, to build upwards of 23 rain gardens. Totaling close to 20,000 square feet, altogether the gardens soak up over 225,000 gallons of water during each storm. These rain gardens help stop flooding in Tonquish Creek, filter out pollution, and create habitat for birds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Across 35 scheduled workdays, we’ll work with small groups of 10-15 volunteers to plant over 10,000 native plant plugs. All volunteers will be required to follow Covid-19 safety procedures, including wearing masks and maintaining 6ft distance from others outside your family group.
