The Scene The setting, overlooking the beach on Lake Michigan, served as a perfect backdrop for Henry Henderson, NRDC’s Midwest Program director, and Amanda Hanley, NRDC’s Midwest Council co-chair and longtime Winnetka resident, to encourage guests to embrace natural solutions, such as rain gardens and permeable pavements, to remedy basement flooding problems.
