About this Project
In 2019 Golden Hills was awarded funding from Iowa Department of Land Stewardship's Water Quality Initiative. "Bringing Urban Practices to Rural Communities" is a multi-site project that will add urban water quality practices (bioretention cells and rain gardens) to county courthouses and fairgrounds in Avoca, Glenwood, Malvern, Oakland, Red Oak, and Sidney. We will also add a rain garden at our office in Oakland. Each site will include education and outreach for youth and adults. See the bottom of this page for scheduled events. Projects will be constructed in spring-summer 2019 and spring 2020. Learn more about IDALS' Water Quality Initiative here.
