LaCrosseWaters.org is the foundational outreach tool for this regional storm water group. It deliberately combines messages about the beauty and value of the area with education about reducing storm water runoff and related pollution. It is built on a belief that people take care of what they care about, and makes a connection between favorite places and our own actions.
This website includes a growing archive of audio/visual stories about people who are protecting local waters by reducing runoff. The site was designed to evolve. A phase two local rain garden catalog makes it easy for individuals to send photos of rain gardens to be included.
