Activities: Enter to win a car and Join Greenway Network and the St. Charles County Department of Health to mark more than 9,000 storm drains in St. Charles County!
Date: Saturday, August 2, 2014
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Place: Sites in every corner of St. Charles County
Why mark storm drains? Some people still dump chemicals, trash and household waste down storm drains. Is it carelessness? Is it ignorance? We’re going to try and make sure it’s not the latter. Passive and permanent education doesn’t get much better than on-site, at-your-feet advice about exactly where those storm drains lead.
What you get out of the deal: Every storm drain volunteer gets entered to win a new Chevy Sonic for the Poage Chevrolet Volunteer with Greenway drawing. You’ll also feel an huge sense of accomplishment for something incredibly easy.
Seriously, after just two hours out on the streets, you can literally look behind you and see the impact you have on stormwater education. And we say there’s nothing wrong with instant gratification.
What to expect: Be prepared to drive to sites throughout St. Charles County as well as do some walking or wheeling from drain to drain.
Storm drain marking will continue on the first Saturday of each month through October. You can register online at www.greenwaynetwork.org.
What to bring: Dress for the weather. Wear shoes made for walking.
