The most recent project has been the Nampa Educational Rain Garden, completed in June 2021. Thanks to the help of NSWAG members, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Nampa School District, and City of Nampa employees. The primary function of the Educational Rain Garden is to demonstrate ways to prevent stormwater runoff from polluting our local waterways. At the site are signage in both Spanish and English that shows the plants used in the garden and a description of what stormwater is. The Educational Rain Garden can be found at Lakeview Park off Garrity Blvd and 12th Ave N in Nampa.

Installed in Fall 2019, The Creeks of Nampa Signs were designed to share information about our watershed and the wildlife who live in it. The signage is bilingual-in both Spanish and English, and was made possible by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Hispanic outreach. These signs can be found off S Canyon St and W Georgia Ave on Wilson Trail in Nampa.
