Throughout the year, outreach staff at the Department of Environmental Protection participate in a variety of activities such as presentations and festivals. As part of Earth Week activities, Watershed Outreach Planner Ana Arriaza participated in an after-school program sponsored by Identity, Inc. at Montgomery Village Middle School. About 30 sixth graders participated.
The youth learned about issues affecting our local waters and came up with art and messages to encourage people to protect our water resources. Twenty-five pieces of art were submitted by the end of the evening with a wide range of inspiring messages. In honor of Earth Day we are sharing some of their art and hope that it will inspire you to protect our waters too!
Don’t forget, if you have a community gathering or festival you wish us to participate in, send us an email!
