There’s no denying that Bookworm Gardens is full of beautiful plants, displays, and sculptures based upon children’s literature. But one sculpture in particular is more than meets the eye. A whimsical turtle resting on a tree stump is featured in the new “Water Is Water” display. The tree stump cleverly serves as part of the overflow structure for a new raingarden/biofilter system designed by Donohue to collect stormwater, promote infiltration, and improve water quality.

When our engineers aren’t busy in the office designing solutions for our clients, they are out and about giving back to the communities we serve. Most recently, a team consisting of five Donohue employees plus three of their friends and spouses took on the challenge of bicycling up to 62.5 miles to benefit the Sheboygan Area Salvation Army. The members of Team Donohue were Tammy Kuehlmann, TJ Bates, Amanda Kinney, Nic and Amber Marzahl, Eric Lynne, and Chris and Wendy Raisbeck (with Aiden and Elliot). Donohue is proud to support our staff members in events such as this and we look forward to participating for many years to come!
