Title: Rain Gardens of West Michigan

URL: http://www.raingardens.org/Index.php

Abstract: A project of the West Michigan Environmental Action Council, the Rain Gardens of West Michigan web site provides a wealth of information on rain gardens, as well as step-by-step advice on creating your own rain garden. Benefits of rain gardens include reduced maintenance of grounds (less watering, less grass to mow, reduced use of pesticides, etc.), increased habitat for wildlife, stormwater pollution prevention and reduced stormwater runoff, and they're beautiful to look at. The web site also includes FAQs, news, and lists rain gardens that can be visited in the West Michigan area.
