In April 2012 Pasadena Water & Power, Public Works and volunteers installed a rain garden at the corner of Union and Catalina, where an attractive public art sculpture is also on display. What started out as an eye-sore is now a beautiful and tranquil cove that serves an environmental purpose as well. The rain garden acts like a sponge and retains moisture for keeping the newly installed plants well hydrated. It also captures rainfall for replenishing the groundwater table, thereby reducing our reliance on imported water sources. This sustainable garden also improves biodiversity by creating a natural habitat for bees and butterflies. THANK YOU TO OUR FABULOUS VOLUNTEERS WHO MADE THIS RAIN GARDEN POSSIBLE!
