The Great Plains Chapter of GNSI, was chosen to paint a rain barrel for
the Friends of Pioneers Park Nature Center and the City of Lincoln
Watershed Management Division Artistic Rain Barrel program. 70 proposals
were submitted and we were one of 25 accepted.
Scenes from the Platte River environment adorn the barrel. Our barrel will
be on display at the Loren Corey Eiseley Branch Library, from March 6 –
April 10. From April 11-18 it will be on display at Pioneer's Park Nature
On April 18 they will be auctioned off at the Nature's Market at Pioneers
Park Nature Center. If you can attend the auction, come and see it and
buy one. The funds they are generating from the auction will go to provide
scholarships to kids for nature classes.
