Lansing is the capital of Michigan, and like Madison, it has a waterfront. Lansing's state capitol building is located near where two rivers come together.

13 rain gardens located within a mile of our capitol grounds.
Lansing's rain gardens are located on the terrace.
They are large and deep, protected with iron railings, and have large openings to accept water from the street.
Maintaining rain gardens is a challenge, because you have to be able to identify which plants to pull as weeds. Having the same people maintain the same garden solves this problem.
Adopt-a-Spot program, where businesses or individuals weed and remove litter from gardens they adopt.
