Learn About Rain Gardens

Grand Marais Public Library
Grand Marais, Minnesota 55604

Cook County Master Gardeners and the Cook County chapter of Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light (MNIPL) will host an informational meeting outside the Grand Marais Library on Tuesday, July 12 at 7 pm. Learn how you can join a group of local citizens in renovating the Grand Marais Library rain garden, originally planted with a grant from the Minnesota Legacy Fund, with the purpose of preventing toxic run-off from entering Lake Superior.

Phil Larson from Cook County Soil and Water will talk about the reasons for and utility of rain gardens in protecting streams and lakes from toxic run-off.

MNIPL is an interfaith group interested in action to protect clean water, to promote the adoption of alternative energies, and to encourage climate mitigation, and promote climate justice. A Cook County chapter is now forming and propose this project as a public demonstration of one way to help alleviate the effects of global warming.

In the event of bad weather, the meeting will be held over Zoom.
