Nebraska Virtual Green Infrastructure Tour
November 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CST
Join us on November 20, 2020 for the Nebraska Virtual Green Infrastructure Tour! After 12 years of face-to-face green infrastructure tours, we will take a diversion this year and jump on the virtual tour bus!
We will be exploring the Tri-Cities Stormwater Program and projects in Scottsbluff, Gering, and Terrytown. We’ll then travel to Kearney to explore a private-public partnership with the MS4 program, local business, and Kearney Highschool. Next, the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum will help us take a look at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce Rain Garden with a focus on plant selection. From there, we will travel to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s East Campus to tour of some the green parking design, bioretention and rain gardens . Finally, when we go to Omaha, we will take a flyover of phases I & II of Spring Lake Park before we talk with a community organizer, engineer and landscape architects. Our final stop will be at Dundee Elementary, where we will speak with designers, city personnel and the school’s principal about how the green infrastructure projects have impacted the school and surrounding community. CEUs available.
