Cougar Canyon Rain Garden in Delta, BC


This project was impressive because it engaged the entire student, staff and parent population at the Cougar Canyon Elementary School in Delta, BC to install a rain garden to capture stormwater runoff from the school parking lot to protect a nearby salmon-bearing stream.  The rain garden was planted with mostly native plants that are drought tolerant so they do not need extra watering.  This project also had a strong education component as the students learned about the importance of, and procedures for, making a rain garden.
