Seeking volunteers to showcase best storm water best practices

The City of Waterloo in partnership with the Healthy Cedar Valley Coalition and other community partners will present “A Practical Backyard Tour” in the Cedar Valley this summer and are looking for volunteers to display their best storm water best practices.

To participate, organizations and homeowners must be willing to open up their green spaces and backyards to share various sustainable and Earth-friendly practices to the public. Topics we are looking to highlight and show in action are; rain gardens, solar panels, pollinator gardens, seed saving, raised beds, composting, vegetable production, pesticide-free lawns, edible garden weeds, bird friendly conservation, rain barrels, swift towers, and beekeeping!

This public educational will be free to the public this summer. More details on the tour will be released later this spring.

The Healthy Cedar Valley Coalition is a large group of community organizations and individuals that have come together to improve the health of our community through outreach and education.

For questions or more information on how you can participate, please contact the Sarah or Cameron at or by calling 319-291-4312.
