    ecosystem native plants climate change habitat climate connections A rain garden is an attractive landscaped area planted with wildflowers and other vegetation preferably native to the area that has been designed to collect water that runs off a roof driveway or other parts of a property including area lawns Rain gardens are intended to fill with water during storms and slowly filter the water into the ground Rain gardens deal with rainfall the way nature intended by infiltrating slowing down and reducing the volume of runoff that enters a stormwater system During heavy rains these beautiful gardens can prevent storm sewer overflows that can end up in our rivers and streams This helps combat the increased rainfall that is a result of climate change In all weather conditions these gardens provide important habitat for birds butterflies and other beneficial insects Climate Connections Rain gardens are a green infrastructure tool being employed by cities to prepare for and adapt to climate change Check out the Climate Connections in Teacher Resources You are not logged in That means you re not authorized to view key elements of EcoExpress If you re a teacher log in or create an account now That way
