The Fox River Ecosystem Partnership (FREP) was awarded a Kane County Riverboat Fund Grant in 2009 to launch a new project - The Kane County Rain Garden Initiative. FREP has partnered with Kane-DuPage Soil & Water Conservation District, University of Illinois Extension, and the Fox Valley Park District on project efforts in Kane County, including the creation of a demonstration rain garden at the University of Illinois Research Farm in St. Charles, development of school curriculum, the creation of a resource CD, and programs/events to highlight rain gardens in the County.

FREP is involved with the entire Fox River watershed, which includes several additional counties in northern Illinois. Therefore, these Rain Garden Initiative web pages will include resources for all of our stakeholders, and will highlight activities and efforts throughout the watershed.
