RAINWATER vs. STORMWATER
What's the difference?


Learn how to prevent rainwater from becoming
stormwater by installing a rain garden!


PRESENTER: JOHN ROYSTER, BIG MUDDY WORKSHOP


SUNDAY, JULY 9

1:30 – 3:00 p.m.

“So when did rainwater, a resource, become stormwater, a nuisance?"

Come to Green Bellevue's July meeting to hear the answer from presenter John Royster, a landscape architect who loves rainwater and hates stormwater. How can this be when it appears he’s referring to the same thing? Or is he? John will provide an engaging, somewhat provocative, and generally entertaining presentation regarding how city governments, private developers and homeowners can help him prevent rainwater from becoming stormwater. John will share his personal story of hand-digging Omaha canal and constructing a rain garden.
A full Q&A session will follow!

About the Presenter: John’s day is spent serving as President and CEO of Big Muddy Workshop, Inc. (bigmuddyworkshop.com) – an Omaha-based master planning, landscape architecture and green infrastructure firm – working as a landscape architect designing cutting-edge rainwater projects with his very talented colleagues.
