As October tends to be a rainy month please be prepared for inclement weather. The school has requested adult only volunteers. Metz Elementary School is teaming with Keep Austin Beautiful (KAB) and EWRI Austin Chapter to build this rain garden. KAB will supply water coolers and the tools needed to construct the rain garden. These rain gardens were designed by UT ASCE students.
