Saturday, April 22nd (rain date Sunday, April 23rd):

10:00am, Meeting location: City of Nelsonville Parking lot located at the intersection of W. Canal St./Old US 33 and Hocking Parkway, Parking lot is located between the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway and the Hocking River.

“Rain to River” Program: Nelsonville Storm Drain Stenciling Day.

RSVP to Sarah Cornwell: Landerss@ohio.edu / 740-593-9601.

Project Description: This activity will raise community awareness about protecting local waterways through stenciling storm drains.  The message “No Dumping, Drains to River” will be stenciled using spray paint, and educational hang tags will be distributed providing information about the stenciling and resources for addressing litter and other pollutants that often end up in storm drains and local waterways.

Volunteers will be provided with a storm drain stenciling kit and will be briefly trained on how to properly place and use stencils.  Each kit will contain everything needed to complete the project including maps of the area.

Participants should prepare by wearing comfortable walking shoes and wearing clothing (bright colors are best for visibility) that they can get dirty (there is a chance participants could get spray paint on their clothes).  Also bring plenty of water to drink.  To complete this project participants must be comfortable standing on or adjacent to city streets.  There will be low traffic flow and each team will have a designated person to watch for traffic.  Also, orange safety vests and traffic cones will be provided.
