To raise public awareness of the impact of stormwater runoff on our local watershed, B.R.I.D.G.E. Alternative students constructed a rain garden for the City of Hancock. The garden is located in downtown Hancock in the parking lot across from the BRIDGE school on Quincy Street. A rain garden is a planted depression which absorbs runoff from imperious surfaces like streets, sidewalks or parking lots. Native wetland plants like wildflowers, ferns and shrubs will be used to reduce erosion, flooding and the amount of pollution reaching our watershed. This project is made possible with a grant from the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative. Contact Chuck Palosaari at 906.482.0828 or cpalosaari@copperisd.org for more information.
