The Rolling Plains Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists won the 2009 Texas Rain Catcher Award in the Nonprofit category from the Texas Water Development Board.
The Master Naturalists designed and constructed two rainwater harvesting systems at River Bend Nature Center in Wichita Falls.
Entries were scored by members of the TWDB staff and outside experts based upon conservation efforts, cost efficiency, originality of design and how well the rainwater harvesting system benefitted the environment. The chapter will be recognized at the upcoming meeting of the Texas Water Development Board in Austin.
The Times Record News did run a small article about the award on February 5.
Way to go!
