Rain barrels offered to Portage County area art educators

By Mike Sever | Staff Writer Published:

The Portage Soil & Water Conservation District wants to collaborate with Portage County art educators in its efforts to provide community education as it relates to storm water.

Portage SWCD will provide rain barrels, at no cost, to art educators on a first come basis, while the supply lasts. Students could paint the barrel and the barrel could then be raffled to raise money for art supplies for the art classroom. Each school district would need to gain administrative approval for how these funds could be raised and retained for their art program.

The SWCD's hope is that each participating district would retain $75 to purchase another rain barrel to be painted and raffled for the following year.

Interested art educators should contact Lynn Vogel at 330-297-7633, est. 111 or email to lvogel@portageswcd.org.
