Panorama West Rain Garden Installation June 10

A rain garden is a perennial flower garden strategically located to capture runoff from rain that falls on parking lots, roofs, driveways and yards. On Saturday, June 10, beginning at 9 a.m., a rain garden will be installed along the east side of the Panorama West clubhouse parking lot.

The idea of installing a demonstration rain garden was discussed at a Friends of Lake Panorama board of directors meeting a year ago. Derek Namanny, an urban conservationist with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, began working with the group last fall. He visited Lake Panorama to look for possible rain garden locations, and found a good spot at Panorama West. Some excavation will be done this week before layers of rock, sand and soil are covered with a hardwood mulch and erosion blanket. About 170 native plants will be planted on Saturday.

Members of the Panora Garden Club are helping plant, and other volunteers also are welcome. Garden club members will hold a plant sale, plus a white elephant sale of garden and outdoor items, in the Panorama West community room from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Coffee and cinnamon rolls, plus hot dogs and hot fudge sundaes, will be available for freewill donations. Area residents are invited to the planting and demonstration event to learn more about rain gardens. To volunteer to help plant, or for more information, send an email to staff@friendsoflakepanorama.org. Or call Susan Thompson at 515-240-6536.
