- St. Mark's UCC (86th and Xerxes), to see their no-chemical lawn care (which permits dandelions to grow!), community garden and composting,

- City-sponsored neighborhood rain gardens in the nieghborhoods near Nine Mile Creek;

- Christ the King Lutheran Church (86th & Freemont), to see their community garden and the inexpensive rain garden they are building to cut storm water run-off into the creek.
