Shrine of the Sacred Heart is located in the Jones Falls watershed in Baltimore, and their property butts up right next to the Jones Falls river. Recognizing the awesome responsibility they have to manage stormwater on their grounds, in 2017 their green team spearheaded an effort to install a 600-square foot rain garden that treats over 5,000 square feet of impervious surfaces. In 2018 they also planted 40 trees. Their team has also led youth group activities, stream clean-ups, stream buffer plantings and energy workshops to help people go solar at home.
