• Master Rain Gardener Certification Courses

    Four courses available this year to become a Master Rain Gardener are expected to fill fast, and registration for the first one, an online course beginning February 3, is open now at www.crwp.org!

    In partnership with Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District and Lake County Soil & Water Conservation District, Chagrin River Watershed Partners will again offer these certification courses for residents and professionals within Northeast Ohio.

    The winter online course begins February 3 with a final in-person class on Saturday, March 21. The mandatory field day for professional track participants will be held on Saturday, May 2.

    Coursework will cover how to design, install and maintain residential rain gardens. Each opportunity offers a two-track option, where participants can choose to receive a residential or a professional Master Rain Gardener certification. The residential certification is geared toward homeowners who would like to install a rain garden in their own yard and serve as the neighborhood expert on rain gardens. The professional certification is geared toward landscape professionals and contractors looking to install rain gardens professionally on residential properties.

    Please see this website, this flyer and this press release for additional information, including details on the three other opportunities in 2020.
