croppedprestenclingalisonrodgerssmallIt is time to start thinking spring! And that means Storm Drain Marking is around the corner! This year, on April 27th, we are teaming up with Global Youth Service Day to do Storm Drain Marking in multiple jurisdictions around Toledo. We are looking for energetic volunteers ages 10 and up who want to educate the public and conserve waterways. Storm Drain Marking is an easy project that educates citizens about the dangers of dumping harmful materials into storm drains that lead directly to our local waterways. Volunteers use stencils and spray paint to write “Drains are for Rain, Flows to Waterway” by storm drains in local neighborhoods. After a morning of marking, an Appreciation Picnic will be held to celebrate our achievements. Marking will be 8:30am-12:00pm and the picnic will be held at 12:30 at the Toledo Zoo. If your organization would like to be part of this important community service and education project, please contact Partners for Clean Streams at 419-874-0727 or [email protected]. Please check out the informational poster  for more information and save the date for April 27th!
