Seeking Donations for New Planting Site at 32nd St NE. PDF Print E-mail


We Need Your Financial Support

Several years ago, Eye 380 volunteers developed a master plan for landscaping along the Interstate 380 corridor through Cedar Rapids and Hiawatha. In 2013, thanks to individual and business financial support, we completed two planting sites north of the Wilson Ave. SW interchange. The sites incorporate colorful plantings designed to echo the stylistic rolling hills and farm fields featured commonly in Grant Wood paintings.

Now we are seeking contributions for maintenance of our four existing landscaping sites, one site currently under construction near Cedar Lake and development of a new project near 32nd St. NE which will be less formal than the Wilson landscaping, with emphasis on native plants and low maintenance.

We are actively pursuing grant funding but need community support from individuals and companies to help pay for development costs and maintenance of these I-380 enhancement sites.  Please consider donations of any amount.

Together we can help beautify our "main street" and build a stronger sense of pride for our community. Click on the upper left guide for information on contributions.  Please contact us with further questions. Thanks for your help.
