To continue to educate the community of how our actions affect our local waters, on Tuesday, April 21 (the day before Earth Day!) the Department of Environmental Protection along with volunteers from White Oak ShopRite Supermarket painted a storm drain with art from the inaugural art contest at the White Oak Community Center in Silver Spring, MD.
Titled, “Think Further Down the Drain”, the art was an original creation of Chrismai N. Dzuong-Webb. Her work was one of three chosen in the storm drain art contest for its creativity, colorfulness and message on protecting our waterways.
Two additional paintings will be painted in the next few weeks. Anyone interested in volunteering can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
