The Water & Rails Pond & Garden Railroad Tour is celebrating 10 years of benefiting ALS of Nevada.
Water & Rails Pond and Garden Tour is proud to announce its 10th year hosting Nevada’s most unique backyard adventure benefiting ALS of Nevada. The tour has grown tremendously over the past ten years, during which time it has managed to raise over $300,000 for ALS research and support. Organized by MacLean Financial Group and Rail City Garden Center, this family-oriented event offers self-guided tours of serene gardens, Koi-filled ponds and model trains that travel more than 1,000 feet of track, under tunnels, over bridges and through miniature towns. Here is the Tour Booklet 2015 map.
Come view some of the best outdoor garden features for the 2015 season during this year’s tour on June 20th and June 21st. Many of the innovations on the tour are do-it-yourself projects that the homeowners love to share. Tour goers can expect to see more than 25 of northern Nevada’s most spectacular ponds and garden railroads during this two-day event. The self-paced tour allows tour goers to visit as many of the ponds and gardens as they like and children under age 12 are free, so it’s a fun day for all ages!
Proceeds from the event benefit ALS of Nevada, an independent nonprofit organization serving ALS patients and their families in the Silver State. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, is a fatal motor neuron disease often called Lou Gehrig’s disease after the New York Yankees baseball icon that was diagnosed with it in 1939 and died two years later. ALS affects the cells in the central nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement, progressively decreasing physical function.
ALS of Nevada provides programs that offer emotional, physical and financial assistance to ALS patients and their families. Programs include home visits, medical equipment loans, counseling, a resource library, support meetings and more.
