Abstract:The City of Lansing, Michigan has retrofitted engineered rain gardens into a streetscape project demonstrating the feasibility of using rain gardens in an ultra-urban area and providing a public education platform to promote watershed stewardship and community involvement. The City is fostering community involvement and rain garden maintenance through an adopt-a-garden volunteer program and watershed stewardship through interpretive signage in coordination with a local hands-on science museum display.
