Interactive rain garden model on display

The City of El Cerrito has a model Rain Garden on display inside City Hall. With the press of a button, visitors can simulate rainfall and see how plants and soil in garden naturally filter pollution from the rainwater before it enters the San Francisco Bay.



The model is on loan from the City of Walnut Creek until March 4, 2010.

Monday, Wed, Fri 8:00am to 4:00pm
