If you want to do your part to protect water right in your own yard, the Blue Thumb – Planting for Clean Water program can help. We aim to make it easy for residents to plan, purchase and plant beautiful native plant gardens, raingardens and shorelines. These cost-effective plantings require little watering and minimal care after established. They also invite birds, butterflies, and other pollinators to your yard.
