Rain Garden Event

The Groundwater Foundation hosted the first of three Rain Garden Workshops Saturday, May 30 in Hastings. Many members of community attended the event and pitched in to help at the Hastings Museum, where an information session took place and then a demonstration installation of the rain garden was completed.

The Groundwater Foundation will be hosting another workshop Saturday, June 6 at the City Square in Stromsburg beginning at 8:45 a.m. The final workshop will take place June 27 in North Platte at the Cody Park Shelter beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Each workshop has a registration fee of $10. The workshops will be led by members of The Groundwater Foundation staff and by a professional landscape designer. For more information, please contact Cindy Kreifels at 1-800-858-4844 or

The workshops are supported through the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Act Section 319 as facilitated by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality.
