Nebraska Virtual Green Infrastructure Tour

March 5 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hosted by UNL Water, a Division of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln

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 the green parking log 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.
