2010 Rain Barrel donation to Pioneers Park Nature Center Auction in Lincoln, NE (Sold for US$500)
Rain Dance Crane – The Sandhill Crane represents the perfect balance between individuality and community. These dancing rain barrel cranes are a symbol for water right issues here in Nebraska. There are many individual needs for communal water – cities, farms, and energy plants are just naming a few.
Before fulfilling and over-filling our personal needs we must think of the needs of others. Water must be left over for our neighbors downstream and for the animals and plants of these lands. Everyone can (rain) dance to the beat of their own drum, but we also must be aware of those dancing around us.

Prairie Trace – With the prairie becoming one of the world’s extinct ecosystems, it is a rare sight for Nebraskans to see some of its great native animals. Despite its harsh winds, cold winters, and humid summers, the prairies once sustained a great amount of flora and fauna. This rain barrel represents the Nebraska prairie: lush grasses and wispy wind at first glance, and a huge reservoir of water hidden beneath.
